Sparrow-Michigan State University

Sparrow Health System in Lansing will have an unexpected PGY-2 opening beginning July 1, 2017.  Sparrow Hospital-Michigan State University is one of the oldest programs in existence. This is a community-based program that has the feel of both an academic/tertiary care center and a community emergency department.  Sparrow’s 68 bed Emergency Department is a Level I trauma center that sees approximately 100,000 visits a year with a 25,000 visit per year dedicated Pediatric Emergency Department.  The facility has an active Trauma Service, Pediatric Intensive Care unit, Comprehensive Stroke Care, including interventional stroke care.  Sparrow has a high acuity patient population and provides a high volume critical care experience.

Residents also rotate at McLaren Greater Lansing’s 36 bed Emergency Department which serves approximately 45,000 patients annually and offers exposure to pathology typically seen in a community hospital environment. This facility complements the main site very well.  At this site, our residents essentially serve as the trauma team, the stroke team and pediatric intensivist.  This allows our residents to gain experience managing these types of critical patients without immediate specialty backup. This setting provides a great exposure to “bread and butter” emergency medicine.

The program is affiliated with Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine and College of Human Medicine offering a unique opportunity for our residents to participate in medical student education, simulation medicine, and hands-on procedural laboratories.

For consideration, applicants should submit the following:

  • Cover Letter stating interest, Emergency Medicine experience, and current circumstances
  • Current CV
  • USMLE Scores (Step 1, Step 2 CK & CS; Step 3 if applicable)
  • Medical School Transcript and Diploma

  • A list of rotations completed in the PGY-1 year (or subsequent years if applicable)

New York-Presbyterian/Queens 

Due to an unexpected opening in our current PGY-2 class, New York-Presbyterian/Queens will be recruiting for an open PGY-2 position in the Emergency Medicine Residency. Applicants should preferably have already completed or should currently be completing a full year in Emergency Medicine.

NYP/Queens is a busy, high-volume, high acuity, academic center in the borough of Queens, one of the five boroughs of New York City. It is a member of the prestigious NewYork-Presbyterian Healthcare System and affiliated with Weill Medical College of Cornell University. NYP/Queens is the receiving hospital for the New York Mets, La Guardia Airport, the USTA, and Flushing Meadows-Corona Park. Our academic faculty consists of over 35 board-certified EM faculty, with multiple subspecialties including Ultrasound, EMS, Critical Care, Simulation, Global Health, and PEM. We are a Level 1 Trauma Center, Primary Stroke Center, and a regional chest pain center with 24/7 PCI. There are currently 3 EM fellowships offered here, including Ultrasound, Administration, and Simulation.

Over the past decade, the hospital has invested heavily in expanding the Emergency Department.  We currently have 85 beds in our Emergency Department. We have a dedicated CT machine, multiple portable up-to-date ultrasound machines, and an electronic medical records system. The volume and acuity of patients continues to grow each year, giving residents training experience in managing emergency department flow. In 2016, over 120K patients visited the NYP/Queens Emergency Department with a very high level of acuity (admission rate of 22 percent compared to the national average of 15 percent).

NYP/Queens is located in Flushing, Queens. It is a 25-minute subway ride from midtown Manhattan. Flushing is a safe, working-class neighborhood in the most culturally diverse county in the United States. The Emergency Department sees patients from every corner of the world who speak over 120 languages.

The program is three years in length and provides comprehensive training in the clinical skills and academic knowledge required to be a leader in emergency medicine. Our redesigned weekly conferences have a focus on resident-led small groups closely supervised by faculty. The weekly conferences include multi-disciplinary lectures with various services, grand rounds with distinguished guest speakers, and a progressive text review. In the past few years, we have incorporated small group learning with a flipped classroom model. The smaller educator:learner ratio has significantly improved the quality of the educational experience. In addition, rigorous learning in the simulation lab is incorporated into every Wednesday conference, allowing for a unique hands-on experience where medical knowledge is applied to clinical skills and procedural competency. Residents also receive training in airway management, procedural sedation, obstetrics, critical care, orthopedics, toxicology, EMS, and EM administration.

Our hospital is one of the most friendly and diverse work environments in New York City. We were pleased to have graduated our first class of residents in 2007, three of which have chosen to stay on as attending physicians. We have graduated a total of 10 classes. Between all of our alumni and current residents, we have created a very large tight-knit group that we all know as our NYPQ family.
