Research training is an important part of the NewYork-Presbyterian Emergency Medicine Residency program. Each resident is required to complete a scholarly project before graduation. The goals of this project are to expose residents to the nature of scholarly inquiry and to foster initial development of niche/area of expertise within Emergency Medicine. Each resident works closely with at least one faculty mentor with similar interests. Our residents have developed a wide variety of extraordinary projects, several of which have launched academic medical careers. Residents are supported to present their work at the SAEM and ACEP research meetings and at other regional, national, and international research symposia. In addition, all residents are supported to attend one SAEM conference prior to starting their scholarly project. This opportunity allows residents to see what scholarly work is being done in Emergency Medicine and to refine their own ideas.
At NYP, we have a well-developed research support infrastructure to assist residents with developing and completing their projects. Our Director of Research, Sunday Clark, ScD, MPH, oversees resident research and is an excellent resource on project milestones, methodology, biostatistics, the IRB application process, abstract and manuscript writing, grant-writing, and the peer-review process.
NewYork-Presbyterian's academic resources are vast, and opportunities for mentorship and collaboration are virtually limitless. In addition to two Ivy League medical schools, we are home to the Mailman School of Public Health (Columbia University), one of the oldest and most distinguished schools of public health in the United States, as well as the Weill Graduate School of Medical Sciences (Cornell University). Our residents are uniquely positioned to draw on the expertise of the over 500 faculty and 1,500 graduate students in these institutions, and many have already taken advantage of this to develop creative projects in fields as varied as narrative medicine and operations management.
