The Internal Medicine residency program at St. John’s Riverside Hospital offers both ACGME accredited three year categorical and one year preliminary medicine tracks. Both tracks are community-based and designed to train knowledgeable, compassionate and efficient physician.
It incorporates clinical, practical, and didactic input from our medical staff and a wide array of healthcare teams, including nursing, social workers, nutritionists, administrators, physical therapists, risk management, performance improvement, medical informatics, and other members. We strongly feel that knowledge of the entire healthcare team is necessary to become an exceptional provider.
We also value the role of the physician as an educator. A physician should articulate medical concepts to a broad audience, including patients, healthcare teammates, and colleagues. All of our residents receive teaching assignments and will become a proficient educator with the guidance of a mentor.
We are a relatively new program-- our inaugural class of 10 residents began July 1, 2017. Residents who join our program have a unique opportunity to help shape our program. We actively seek resident feedback on all aspects of the program and see the residents as architects of the program with us.
We are fortunate to have an extremely dedicated, experienced, and energetic faculty who trained at top-notch residencies all over the country. With high volume patient encounters, innovative education styles, and an enthusiastic teaching faculty, we provide a premier learning experience for our EM residents.
SJRH is a clinical affiliate with Montefiore Medical Center. As such, our residents will be rotating at Jacobi Medical Center for trauma, Montefiore Medical Center for the neonatal and neurosurgical ICU experience, and the Andrus and Dobbs Ferry Pavilions Emergency departments.
Our mission is to provide high-quality, comprehensive, and dynamic education for our trainees. We are looking for the next class of outstanding residents to help us continue to build our residency. Join us!
