This allows our trainees to receive the vast majority of their their training on-site, negating the need for frequent travel to other healthcare institutions.

Cohen Children's Medical Center - Northwell Health

New Hyde Park, New York

Rotations: Pediatric Emergency Medicine

At Cohen Children's Medical Center, we’re dedicated to providing the very best care to meet the special needs of children, from premature babies to adolescents. Our 202-bed hospital opened in 1983 as the New York metropolitan area's only hospital designed exclusively for children. Today we are the largest provider of pediatric health services in New York state, serving 1.8 million children in Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk counties.

At our center, children see us differently—because we approach them differently. We understand their needs, their emotions, their fears, and their wish to lead normal lives—to just be kids. That's why we’ve created a warm and bright environment to make every child's stay with us as pleasant and comfortable as possible. Every aspect of our spacious, open building was designed with kids and families in mind—from the fold-out beds for parents to the fully staffed playrooms on each floor.

We have the region’s only free-standing emergency department exclusively devoted to treating children, and we are a Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center. We also have a state-of-the-art pediatric diagnostic imaging center with X-ray, low dose CAT (CT) scan and bedside ultrasound available, and we have a dedicated pediatric pharmacy.


While SSUH EM residents see plenty of pediatric patients in our primary ED, rotating at CCMC provides them with more opportunities to learn from PEM trained faculty, pediatric sub-specialists, and children with more rare conditions who receive their chronic care at Cohen’s. 

Katz Women's Hospital - Northwell Health

Manhasset, New York

Rotations: NICU

Our Level 3 neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is equipped to provide complex, state-of-the-art neonatal care to infants. It has been awarded a Gold Beacon Award for Excellence, which recognizes North American hospital units that provide excellent services to patients and families using evidence-based practices. 


Our SSUH EM residents split their PGY 2 NICU rotation between Katz Women’s Hospital and SSUH. Their time spent at Katz allows them more experience with critically ill infants who suffer from severe illness, while being able to contribute to the academic culture of a department that houses several residencies and fellowships dedicated to the care sick newborns. 

North Shore University Hospital - Northwell Health

Manhasset, New York

Rotations: Toxicology 

A Level 1 Trauma Center, North Shore University Hospital has 738 beds and a staff of approximately 4,000 specialty and subspecialty physicians. It offers care in all medical and surgical specialties, including cardiovascular services, cancer care, orthopedics, maternal-fetal medicine and women's health services. The hospital offers neuroscience capabilities, including the Harvey Cushing Institutes of Neuroscience. These include The Chiari Institute, Movement Disorders Institute, Brain Tumor Institute, Brain Aneurysm Center, Headache Center and Spine Center as well as a state-designated stroke center.

The campus is home to the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research. 

Medical toxicologists in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Northwell Health's North Shore University Hospital, provide medical toxicology consulting services for emergency patients suffering from toxic exposures. Staffed by four board-certified medical toxicologists and three toxicology fellows-in-training, our specialized medical toxicology consulting services evaluate and treat patients with health problems relating to exposure to toxins. Our medical toxicologists perform bedside evaluations at North Shore University Hospital and Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York. We also see patients biweekly in our outpatient clinic to evaluate for sub-acute and chronic poisoning. Our medical toxicology physicians provide uncompromising care and expertise for poisoned adults and children. This specialized care may be life-saving, particularly in unusual or difficult cases.


Our EM residents rotate with the Toxicology service for two weeks during their PGY 2 year. During this time, they serve as an integral member of the toxicology consultant team, while learning from fellowship-trained toxicologists.  

Peconic Bay Medical Center - Northwell Health

Riverhead, New York

Rotations: Community ED

Founded in 1951 as Central Suffolk Hospital, Peconic Bay Medical Center (PBMC) is the largest hospital in eastern Suffolk County, and the Eastern Hub of Northwell Health. 

As a not-for-profit 200-bed community hospital, we serve as the primary resource for advanced healthcare services for the 250,000+ residents of the Riverhead area, eastern central Suffolk County, and Long Island's North Fork.  We provide our service area's only Interventional Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory Suite, Level III Trauma Center, and NYS-Designated Stroke Center.

At PBMC, our residents learn how to thrive in a limited-resource community ED setting. There are very few consultants available, and almost every emergency procedure must be handled by the emergency medicine physician. Our residents gain the skills needed to stabilize critically ill medical, surgical, and trauma patients to ensure safe transfer to SSUH for more definitive care. The acuity tends to be fairly high as this patient population has poor access to primary care and community resources.
