Welcome to LIJ EM/IM and EM/IM+CC
The Long Island Jewish Medical Center (LIJMC) Emergency Medicine and Internal Medicine residency program is a combined 5-year program that offers an integrated curriculum on the path toward dual board certification, or triple board certification with an optional 6th year in Critical Care. LIJ EM/IM+CC is one of the oldest combined programs in the US and has been fully accredited since its inception in 1988. The program also operates a resident driven inpatient Invasive Procedure Team (IPT) which leads to mastery of common beside procedures. The extended training allows both for medical mastery and for meaningful involvement in many research projects, quality initiatives, and teaching at the Zucker School of Medicine (at Hofstra-Northwell). Leadership roles are expected of 4th and 5th year residents, with 5th year residents typically achieving a Chief Residency.
Residents work at a variety of sites, including LIJMC, North Shore University Hospital, Jacobi Medical Center, University of Maryland Shock Trauma, and other hospitals within the Northwell Health System. Optional community/training sites include eICU (telemedicine), Huntington Hospital, Lenox Hill Hospital, and the Lenox Health Greenwich Village Free Standing ED.
Combined training provides physicians with a tremendous amount of insight into the entire continuum of care including ED resuscitation, inpatient care, and outpatient management. Residents of this program establish strong relationships throughout the hospital and they naturally serve as liaisons across the continuum of care. Our graduates have gone on to successful careers in academic and community medicine and many have become leaders in their respective hospitals.
This competitive program offers two spots per year. Applications are accepted via ERAS only.
