Welcome To NYC Health+Hospitals /Queens
The Residency Program in Internal Medicine at NYC Health+ Hospitals /Queens has everything a strong candidate is looking for in a great training program – an innovative teaching program with a large, well-trained faculty committed to housestaff education, a diverse patient population with a vast array of disease processes, and a friendly, collegial atmosphere. The academic environment will be further enhanced by a variety of upcoming subspecialty fellowships. The medical students at NYC Health+Hospitals add to the educational environment and also foster scholarship and research. One aspect of residency training at NYC Health+Hospitals /Queens that sets us apart from other programs is the degree of career guidance residents receive here. Starting in their PGY-1 year, we assist each resident in finding the right path for their career development, whether it is obtaining a competitive fellowship position or finding the right job as a hospitalist or in primary care. Residents are guided through each step of this process, beginning with how to perform research and which research projects to focus on, to what electives to take, to how and where to apply for fellowships, and then how to excel at a fellowship or job interview. Add to that, the borough of Queens is a great place to live, whether you are single, recently married or with children. Queens has wonderful, safe, inexpensive neighborhoods, convenient shopping, great restaurants of every kind, and we’re just a short subway ride from Manhattan. If you choose to train at NYC Health+Hospitals /Queens, you will consider it the best decision you ever made – just ask any of our residents. They love the program so much that many of them, after they have completed their training, return to join our teaching faculty.
“When you come to NYC Health+Hospitals /Queens, you don’t come just for a residency –you come for a career.”
