Program Curriculum

Our Emergency Medicine Residency Training Program has a four-year format, EM-I, EM-II, EM-III and EM-IV. It is approved and fully accredited by the Residency Review Committee (RRC) for Emergency Medicine of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The program encompasses 48 months of study objectives designed to meet the special requirements for residency training in Emergency Medicine.

All rotations are designed in 4-week blocks. Over the course of four years, two thirds of the time is devoted to Emergency Department rotations (adult, pediatric, trauma). EM-I and EM-II residents will spend 2 blocks in The Brooklyn Hospital Center’s Pediatric Emergency Department.  EM-III and EM-IV residents have a more advanced pediatric experience, working a block each year in the Pediatric Emergency Department at Kings County Hospital Center, a Level 1 trauma center. There are twelve weeks of elective time during the EM-III (four weeks) and EM-IV (eight weeks) years. Residents receive four weeks of vacation each year.
