Welcome to the South Shore University Hospital Emergency Medicine Residency Program!
Like you, we’re very excited for this year’s interview season and looking forward to meeting with many of you in the coming months. The program’s leadership has thought long and hard about the best way to conduct this interview season safely and effectively. While we all hoped the COVID19 pandemic would be far behind us by now, we unfortunately find ourselves still battling the virus. Given the risk of travel for our applicants and to avoid potential cancellations due to travel restrictions, we have decided to conduct this year’s interview season entirely virtually. We know this may be disappointing to some - it’s disappointing for us too. However, we believe this is the safest way for us all to interact this season.
On a brighter note – though we will be hosting virtual information sessions and social events throughout the season, we still feel it is vitally important that you, the candidates, have the opportunity to meet the people and tour the facility where you may potentially be spending your next three years. Therefore, we have also decided to host a limited number of in-person tours of our department and social events with our residents. Those details will be forthcoming once the interview season officially kicks off! Check your emails and follow our chief residents’ social media account @BayShoreEMDoc for the most up-to-date information regarding these events.
To be clear, in-person events will be open to those who have scheduled an interview and feel comfortable gathering, but by no means are they required. A virtual interview will constitute and be considered a complete application. All in-person sessions are strictly to help our applicants get a better feel of our facility, residents, and faculty. Attendance will, in no way, influence your application.
Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions. We look forward to meeting you and introducing you to our wonderful program, hospital, and community!
