City Life

New York is one of the most exciting, diverse, and safe cities in the world. Living in Manhattan or one of the surrounding boroughs, affords us access to literally thousands of restaurants, shows, museums, bars, clubs, shops, and concerts. In addition, with close proximity to the Hudson and East Rivers, as well as Central Park, the opportunity for outside activities is endless.

It's New York City! East Village, Lower East Side, Soho, Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge, Empire State Building, Lincoln Center, the Hamptons, the Giants, the Yankees, the Mets, the Knicks... & even the Brooklyn Nets.

Being a resident in New York City is like no other. From a post-night shift brunch to working the NYC marathon to celebrating living in the most vibrant city in the world, our residents support each other and are the core of our program.

In addition, the city offers opportunities outside of residency to be involved. Some of these include:

 

Annual NYC Marathon - Each year residents are encouraged to participate on the Annual NYC Marathon Medical Team. This event is the largest mass participation sporting event in the city. Residents gain experience with mass gathering medical care where we treat between 3000 and 4000 patients in all of our medical facilities over the course of the day.

High School Teaching Program - EM-2 residents give periodic interactive lectures to students at a nearby high school for health professions.

Sporting Events - Residents are able to volunteer to provide medical coverage of periodic sporting events on an as needed basis.

Social Events

While we work hard in the ED, we also find time for fun! Each year, we have a beach day, most recently held on Fire Island, and a ski/snowboarding trip which has been held anywhere from Hunter Mountain in upstate NY to the Berkshires in Massachusetts.

In the spring, we have a retreat, typically held in Central park, in which we discuss and evaluate each clinical rotation, conferences, curriculum, and general issues regarding the program, followed by food, drink, and relaxation. In addition, on the first Wednesday of every month, we have a night out at a local restaurant, bar, or lounge, open to all residents EM or rotators, medical students, spouses, and friends.
