Emergency Medicine Residency Program

Joseph Bove, M.D.Joseph Bove, M.D., chairman of emergency medicine, is assistant professor of emergency medicine at Weill Medical College of Cornell University. A graduate of Georgetown University Medical College, he is a diplomat of the American Board of Emergency Medicine.

The education and training of the emergency medicine resident is a central focus of the Department of Emergency Medicine at New York Methodist Hospital. Our Department of Emergency Medicine is the first to be designated a Level One Emergency Center by the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine. Each year, the emergency department at New York Methodist evaluates over 65,000 patients with a large variety of high acuity pathology. It is designated an EMS 911 Receiving Station by New York City's Health and Hospitals Association and an Emergency Heart Care Station by the American Heart Association. It has a 24-hour pediatric emergency service.

The Emergency Medicine Residency Training Program is a categorical PGY 1-3 teaching program which has been carefully designed to maximize the resident's opportunity to succeed. The program's goal is to graduate emergency medicine-trained residents who will become leading clinicians, educators, researchers and administrators. It boasts a strong and motivated faculty - all diplomats of the American Board of Emergency Medicine - who have a variety of interests including clinical care, teaching, administration, research and pre-hospital care. Each resident will be paired with a faculty member who will be responsible for ensuring that the resident achieves the goals and objectives set forth in the curriculum. All efforts will be made to allow the resident to achieve maximum results.

A comprehensive, well-planned training program combining clinical experience and didactic presentations will provide the resident with progressively graded clinical, administrative, and teaching responsibility throughout the duration of the program.

Didactic Teaching Curriculum
A thorough, didactic teaching curriculum, the Core Content Educational Presentation Series (CCEPS), consists of five-six hours of weekly educational presentations, including formal didactic sessions, grand rounds with local and nationally renowned guest speakers, anatomy and procedure laboratories, resident case presentations, and morbidity and mortality review. In addition, four hours per month will be spent reviewing and critiquing current emergency medicine literature and in the teaching of research methodology and statistics.

Clinical Experience Curriculum
An excellent clinical curriculum has been developed to offer comprehensive clinical training in a variety of settings:

At New York Methodist, the resident will receive training in emergency medicine and complete rotations in internal medicine, neurology, surgery, pediatrics and neonatology, obstetrics and gynecology, critical care, research and administration.

The resident will rotate at New York Weill Cornell Center of New York Presbyterian Hospital for training in fracture service, otorhinolaryngology, ophthalmology and pediatric critical care.

A rotation at Brookdale University Medical Center, an urban, inner-city hospital, provides experience in trauma service and pediatric emergency service. This rotation is under the supervision of the emergency medicine faculty of the State University of New York, Downstate Medical Center.

The resident will have the opportunity to participate in pre-hospital care during the Emergency Medical Service rotation. New York Methodist is a certified on-line medical control station and conducts a Paramedic Training Institute under the medical direction of the Department of Emergency Medicine.

During the second year, the resident will rotate at the New York City Poison Control Center, an internationally recognized facility under the direction of the faculty of the emergency medicine department at New York University and Bellevue Hospital.
