Hello and welcome to the Department of Emergency Medicine here at Maimonides Medical Center (MMC).
As a rotating medical student, you will have the opportunity to work and learn in one of the busiest emergency departments in the country. Many of our patients are medically complicated, which provide excellent training for medical students, as well as our residents. The patient population at MMC represents one of the most culturally diverse populations in New York City.
In other words, you will be busy, you will be challenged, and we expect you to be very much involved! Clinically, you will participate in the complex resuscitations and procedures we perform every day. To augment our experience, we have a young and dynamic attending staff that are accessible and interested in teaching.
If you are strongly considering EM as a career, please let us know as soon as possible. Your performance – based on your clinical evaluations, presentation, exam score and interview – will determine where you will be placed on our match list.
That being said, I hope and expect you to have a rich academic experience that will push you and enable you to have fun.
Please contact either me or Ms. Angela Antonopoulos, AAntonopoulos@maimonidesmed.org, to arrange for a rotation with us.
In addition, we also offer a rotation in Ultrasound in Emergency Medicine, please contact me for further details.
