It was 9:30 at night and Anna Young, 42, was sitting on her bed typing and strategizing on her laptop. She was opening her own business and going to law school and had just returned from working in Europe at her job as a banker-she had many balls in the air.

Medical Residency Programs


NYM medical resident


Resident physicians can usually be accommodated in Wesley House, a modern twelve-story apartment building located directly opposite the Hospital entrance, or in one of the other apartments owned or operated by the Hospital. Rentals include gas, electricity, heat, and air conditioning. All apartments have combination kitchen and dining areas and a bathroom. Studio apartments have a combined living room and bedroom. All others have separate living room and bedrooms.

Married residents without children qualify for studio apartments. One-bedroom apartments are usually assigned on the basis of number of children; two bedroom apartments may also be assigned to be shared by two residents. No provision is made for members of the family other than the spouse and dependent children.


Full-time attending physicians have teaching appointments at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University. Many members of the staff are involved in clinical research and publish in peer-reviewed journals. Residents are encouraged to participate in such research and to initiate their own projects under the sponsorship of attending physicians.


The NYM Health Sciences Library provides clinicians with current and authoritative information on patient care, medical education, research, and health care administration.

Library users have access to online medical databases including PubMed, Ovid, UpToDate, AccessMedicine, AccessEmergency Medicine, AccessSurgery, STATRef, EBM Reviews, NEJM, CINAHL, Nutrition Care Manual, and the Library catalog. The Library print collection includes 3,300 textbooks and 160 current journal subscriptions. The Library is staffed by a full-time professional medical librarian and three library assistants.

Find more information about the NYM Health Sciences Library here or call 718.780.5197.


Schedules for residents are prepared in compliance with ACGME regulations and with the New York State Department of Health, Regulation 405.


Through a collective bargaining agreement between New York Methodist Hospital and the Committee of Interns and Residents (CIR), each resident is covered by the Voluntary Hospital Staff Benefits Plan. Representatives of the CIR will furnish information regarding the specific benefit plan provisions or you may contact the CIR Benefits Office directly.


Residents are entitled to four weeks of vacation per year (from July 1 through June 30), and one approved extra-mural course or meeting during the senior year.


The Hospital provides each resident with six uniforms annually. These uniforms are laundered at no cost to residents.

Other Benefits

Residents receive meal vouchers and parking tickets while taking call. Each resident receives an allowance of $525 each year of service for the purchase of books, journals, CD-ROMs, state mandated medical licenses, licensure and medical board exams, PDAs, and educational/professional software. Any unused portion of the allowance will be accumulated from year to year. On-call rooms with computers and televisions are provided. Specific departments may offer additional benefits.
