Albert Einstein College of Medicine Jacobi/Montefiore Residency Program


The Emergency Medicine Residency Program of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine was established in 1975 at Jacobi Medical Center. It was the first residency in Emergency Medicine in NewYork City and is one of the oldest programs in the country. The addition in 1996 of Montefiore Medical Center as a second training site established an ideal educational environment by coupling Jacobi's strength as acommunity-based, municipal hospital and trauma center with the tremendous resources of a tertiary care, university hospital.  Emergency Medicine has full academic departmental status within the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. 

The combination of experiences at Jacobi and Montefiore provides our residents with an incredibly diverse and rewarding education in Emergency Medicine. Our residents learn compassionate and socially sensitive care of patients from all walks of life and all parts of the world.  At the same time, the combined Jacobi-Montefiore experience provides our residents with the tools they will need to be successful practitioners and leaders in the field.
