EMIM Combined

Welcome to the website for the SUNY Downstate – Kings County Hospital combined emergency medicine-internal medicine program. We offer training for board eligibility in both emergency and internal medicine. Located in the center of Brooklyn, New York City’s largest borough, we offer an unparalleled training experience in one of the busiest emergency departments in the country with active in-patient and out-patient services in a tertiary care center.

The emergency medicine residency is the largest residency in the country with a national reputation and a focus on diversity, leadership, research, and clinical acumen.

The internal medicine department is one of the largest academic departments in the country with 13 academic training programs, a diverse faculty, and fellowships in all major subspecialties.

We are looking for applicants to become part of our diverse residency program with an interest in serving our underserved community, leadership, and training in a fast paced clinically rich environment.
