Welcome from the Director

Garg Manish

Dr. Manish Garg


Welcome to the NYP Physician Emergency Medicine Residency Program! Our comprehensive curriculum develops exceptional educators and master clinicians. Our residents graduate into fellowship programs, grow into academic powerhouses, and excel in the community. Most of all, we pride ourselves in creating family and friendship. The people are what make NYP the truly special place it is to train. We care for and support our patients; we promote an environment of learning and wellness; and we never miss an opportunity to have fun together! We would love for you to join our family.


Our Emergency Departments treat more than 250,000 patients annually. Our residents enjoy the benefits of being associated with two prestigious medical schools. Cornell and Columbia allow our residents access to research and scholarly activities in such areas as basic science, clinical protocol development and implementation, medical error reduction, EM operations, burn medicine, stroke research, toxicology, innovative design, telemedicine, and narrative medicine. This association presents unique mentorship opportunities to form a collaborative relationship with leading researchers and clinicians. The depth and breadth of experience available at NYP is unparalleled, and we feel strongly that NYP provides an extraordinary clinical education for our residents.

Where do residents live?

Residents live all over the city because NYC has such great public transportation.  In addition, there is hospital housing available for residents near both campuses at a subsidized rate. Information is available from NewYork-Presbyterian Real Estate. 

Will I be able to go to national conferences?

Yes, we send all the PGY-2s to SAEM annually. In addition, if you are presenting at a conference, the residency helps fund your expenses.

In-Service Board Review Program

The emergency medicine board review program utilizes an adult learning model combined with a comprehensive didactic program. The residency has purchased electronic board review materials for every resident and has created thoughtful board review sessions to prepare learners for the American Board of Emergency Medicine oral and written examinations.

Grand Rounds and Didactics

In addition to world-renowned EM Grand Rounds speakers, didactics are divided into innovative “Theme” and “Core” days. We design the educational experience using a variety of teaching modalities such as interactive small group sessions, simulation cases, procedure skill sessions, short lectures, etc. We have Morning Report at each campus every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday and once monthly Journal Club.
