Our Mission

South Shore University Hospital’s Mission for the Emergency Medicine Residency is to develop efficient leaders in Emergency Medicine who can succeed in any clinical setting through care and advocacy of diverse and vulnerable patient populations.  We aim not only to deliver superb, evidence-based care to our patients, but also to train the next generation of emergency physicians to carry on that mission. 


The program aims:  Graduates of the Emergency Medicine Residency Program at South Shore University Hospital will be trained to serve diverse and multicultural populations in an inclusive and unbiased manner; engage with a variety of specialists (such as cardiology, trauma, orthopedics, critical care, social work, case management, psychiatry, etc.) so as to effectively deliver the most comprehensive care to their patients within our complex healthcare delivery system; recognize current standards of professional behavior; work with and learn from supervising physicians with diverse educational training backgrounds, and carry on their own lifelong learning; gain expert procedural skills from experience with both patients and state-of-the-art simulation resources; acquire the most advanced medical knowledge available and translate that knowledge to world-class bedside care; and finally, to synthesize all of the elements of residency training to acquire the clinical judgment necessary for independent practice.

Diversity & Inclusion


As our surrounding communities have become increasingly diverse, we at Northwell Health have formalized our diversity, inclusion and health literacy strategy. Advancing cultural and linguistic competence and promoting effective health care communication are key components of our mission to provide excellent patient-centered care, eliminate health disparities and enhance health outcomes for patients, families and members of our communities.

Northwell Health has been named the best health system for diversity in the United States, according to the latest DiversityInc ranking of Top Hospitals and Health Systems. Northwell was recognized from more than 1,000 organizations for its ongoing efforts to formalize its diversity, inclusion and health equity strategy with a focus on enhancing the health needs of the disparate communities and the patients it serves.
