Our departmental Fellows’ Research Course provides trainees with a longitudinal curriculum covering the material recommended by the ABP and ACGME for fellowship training in research. Fellows present their research at local, regional and national meetings, and have the opportunity to pursue additional education through our Clinical Research Training Program. Additional curricula provide fellows with an opportunity to study quality improvement and professional development, and fellows are exposed to topics related to diversity, equity and inclusion while attending seminars dedicated to those topics.

Live and work close to the best of everything

The Bronx, New York City’s northernmost borough, is a culturally rich neighborhood placed at the intersection of Manhattan and its surrounding regions. Our postgraduate trainees typically live in hospital housing or off-site in nearby Riverdale, Lower Westchester or Manhattan, and have access to an unmatched diversity of experiences beyond the program itself. 

In the Bronx, with its ample parks and gardens, you’ll learn first-hand why it’s known as “the City’s Greenest Borough.” The neighborhood offers plenty of local food, art, sports and culture, and is just a subway ride away from Manhattan’s famed theaters, museums and attractions. 

As a resident of the Tri-State region, you’ll have unmatched access to the city’s cultural offerings, not to mention the bounty of outdoor excursions that are available just beyond. Day-trips and weekend excursions to the Hudson Valley, Catskills, Long Island or New Jersey provide ample opportunities for swimming, hiking, biking, skiing and other seasonal activities.
