Welcome from the Program Director:
Welcome to the Staten Island University Hospital (SIUH) Emergency Medicine Residency Program! SIUH is an incredible place to do your residency. Our hospital consists of two sites (North and South) which are two of only three hospitals on Staten Island. SIUH North is a level-I trauma center, a STEMI center with a 24-hour cath lab, a regional burn center, and a stroke center. SIUH South is a community-based hospital with a faster pace and limited back-up services available. Here you will be exposed to real-life community-based emergency medicine.
We are committed to training some of the best residents in emergency medicine. We know you will be the ones caring for our loved ones when they are sick or injured, and we will train you to that high standard. We have a strong faculty of emergency medicine trained physicians who are eager to share their expertise and experience with you. Fellowship-trained physicians will teach you the subspecialties including pediatrics, toxicology, and ultrasound. SIUH has its own EMS service and you will provide on-line medical control to several ambulance services in the area. Throughout your rotations, you will receive superb training in all of emergency medicine, with intense focus on pediatrics and critical care. You will also be taught all emergency procedures in a structured and methodical way.
