Welcome to the Department of Emergency Medicine
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 provides excellent training for medical students, as well as our residents. The patient population at Maimonides 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 your experience, we have a young and dynamic attending staff who are accessible and interested in teaching. In addition, you will be given Didactic lectures and Simulation cases on a weekly basis.
If you are strongly considering emergency medicine as a career, please let us know as soon as possible. Your performance--based on your clinical evaluations, an oral presentation, and final exam score--will determine whether you are interviewed and ultimately placed on our Match list. That being said, I hope and expect you to have a rich academic experience which will push you and enable you to have fun.
Please contact either me or Mrs. Angela Maravolo (firstname.lastname@example.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.
