The Emergency Medicine Residency Program is aligned with the Einstein Healthcare Network's mission to provide care with humanity involving humanness and kindness, humility about our own importance in this process, honor with due esteem and reverence for the medical profession, and healing by providing highly intelligent and responsive healthcare for as many patients as we can reach. The mission of the Emergency Medicine Residency Program is to ensure that each resident approaches patient care in the emergency department with humanity, humility and honor and understands that it is an honor to have the skill set to save lives, limbs, and reduce pain and suffering.
1. To prepare residents to understand the specific needs of the community and hospital that we will serve and will be compassionate in the care of their patients and "give-back" both to the community and hospital.
