Yale-New Haven Hospital Emergency Medicine Residency

Recommended Posts

Looks like a great program! How much of a pediatric population is there exposure to? And how much Peds ED is there?

We are planning on 10 weeks of Peds EM.  Yale Children's Hospital is a pediatric level 1 trauma center, and we have a separate pediatric ED located 50 feet down a hallway from the Adult ED.  We are also exploring a potential second pediatric site at another hospital in our health system to offer some variety.  Residents will also rotate in two community ED's that see both adult and pediatric patients.

Just as an update, we will also be including a dedicated rotation in simulation medicine for the residency program.  The Department of Emergency Medicine along with the School of Medicine have invested significantly in a brand new simulation center which will open next week.  Our residents will have the opportunity to practice procedures, manage complex cases and resuscitations, as well as learning about simulation medicine (with the possibility of teaching opportunities with rotating students). The facility is new enough that it isn't even on the university website yet, but photos of the facility can be found on their Facebook page.

While working at YNHH, where will the PA residents spend their time?  Will they be incorporated onto A side (highest acuity) with the MD residents or will they be working lower acuity patients on B and C side?

The residents will be working in all sections.  B and C side shifts will be primarily for PGY-1's (like the MD residents), and A side for PGY-2's (once they have some of the experience needed for critical care).

Hello, my name is Bryce, I am one of the first year EMPA residents at Yale. I recently heard from my program director that we are still accepting applications for next year’s class. If you are a PA student graduating this Spring or a practicing PA looking for more hands on critical care I would highly recommend applying. This has been a truly amazing experience! Let me know if you have any questions.

 

For more information check out the website.

Hello. Thanks for all of the tips on this thread!

 

Is that 3.0 GPA Requirement set in stone? (I literally had a 2.99 in PA school).

Just sent you a PM.

The PA residents follow the same ACGME duty hour restrictions as the physician residents.  Exact hours and shift length will vary based upon the specific rotation; typically most rotations will be 40-60 hours/week, with a few (such as MICU) potentially longer depending on call schedule.

how is the work/schedule hours like? 

 

 

This will vary based upon the specific rotation.  Some will be 40 hours working 8 hours/day, some will include nights/weekends, others may be 10-12 hours/shift or longer.

What do you look for in a PA applicant, and what would you recommend for a PA student before starting your residency? How much does EM clinical experience, undergrad/PA school GPA, and PANCE scores play a role in the application process?

The specific prerequisites are available on the website, but like many other programs we are looking for applicants who are highly motivated learners with a strong desire to pursue a career in emergency medicine. Prior EM experience does not hurt, but is not mandatory for a successful resident.  Academics are emphasized with the program, so GPA is a consideration, but PANCE is not.  Many applicants are still in PA school at the time of their interviews, and they may not take the PANCE until they have already started in the residency program.

 

As a PA student, it would likely be beneficial to demonstrate some interest in emergency medicine during your time in PA school.  This might incorporate extra electives, professional memberships, research, etc.  

 

I hope this helps a little; feel free to e-mail any of the faculty listed on the website with specific questions as well.

Sorry that we will miss you! Feel free to contact any of the faculty with any questions you might have (info on the website) or speak with one of our residents when they rotate through the Bridgeport ED.
