About the Department of Emergency Medicine

Our mission is to excel in emergency clinical care, medical education, research, and community outreach.

At the Department of Emergency Medicine, we treat more than 87,000 patients every year, providing the highest quality of individualized care in our dedicated adult, pediatric, and trauma areas. Our emergency department has a 30 percent admission rate, reflecting the high severity of illness among patients for whom we care.

Our team collaborates with specialists from various medical teams within NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island. Our priority is to provide rapid, thorough, and compassionate care, and to promote the health and wellbeing of every patient. We are also committed to promoting the health and wellbeing of our staff.

Our research and community outreach activities currently focus on medical education, physician wellness, diabetes screening, palliative and end-of-life care, and opioid and alcohol use disorders.

At NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine, our distinguished faculty members have developed novel educational strategies to transform teaching, learning, and assessment to meet the needs of a continuously changing medical practice and prepare our trainees for anticipated and unforeseen challenges. We provide advocacy and mentorship to our trainees throughout their education.

We are committed to nurturing diversity and inclusion in every aspect of our work. We celebrate the diverse identities, life experiences, and perspectives of our community. We consider diversity and inclusion essential for trainee and faculty recruitment, retention, and promotion. We believe that a diverse and inclusive department provides optimal care for our patients and communities. We are committed to respecting all patients and ensuring that they feel valued and supported.
