Program Description

The TBHC Emergency Medicine Physician Assistant training will closely mimic the didactics and clinical aspects of our ABEM accredited Emergency Medicine Physician Residency. As one of the first EM residencies in Brooklyn, our core faculty has years of teaching and clinical experience. You will attend EM resident weekly and occasional NYC wide EM conferences, participate in simulation lab, prepare morning reports, complete off site rotations and be actively involved in ED resuscitations. There are many opportunities for academic development and collaboration with our research department. As a major teaching institution and a 911 receiving Hospital that sees over 70,000 visits per year, you will be exposed to a wide variety of emergencies and unexpected clinical scenarios. In addition, we are a designated Stroke Center, Bariatric Center and Cardiac Catheterization Center. Our unique urban setting, affords us the opportunity to care for a diverse and challenging patient population with various medical needs. Our faculty is Board Certified in EM and has additional expertise in Emergency Ultrasound, Hyperbaric Medicine, Disaster Medicine and Research. Our faculty (Dr. Yakobi and Dr. DeSouza) has taught at LIU and Cornell Physician Assistant School and held city wide annual conferences in Emergency Medicine for Physician Assistants.
