Our Mission

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 exceptional care to our patients, but also to train the next generation of emergency physicians to carry on that mission.

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.
