About Residency at Maimonides

Preparing you for a Lifetime of Quality Practice

As a resident at Maimonides, you will take on progressively greater responsibility for patient care throughout the course of your residency, acquiring clinical experience, knowledge and skills along the way.

In addition to clinical training, you will participate in a well-organized didactic program of seminars and teaching conferences, which provide a balanced and complete education.

Weekly conferences, daily teaching rounds, grand rounds, and "Mortality & Morbidity" conferences are just some of the regularly scheduled sessions. Academic conferences and presentations by distinguished scholars, visiting professors and physicians are available to you by sponsoring departments or through the Office of Academic Affairs. You will also participate in substantial research activities within your department.

Our Office of Academic Affairs conducts Resident and Faculty Development Seminars, addressing a range of topics and issues which affect house-staff training and development, such as stress management, practice management, test-taking skills, substance abuse, patient/physician communication, cultural diversity, sexual harassment and ethical issues. In addition, you will be an integral part of our formal quality assurance process.

All Maimonides graduate medical education programs focus on the ACGME core competencies: 

  • Patient care
  • Medical knowledge
  • Practice-based learning and improvement
  • Interpersonal and communication skills
