    Education Division Highlights

    The Education Division is second to none. The mission of the Division of Education at Albert Einstein is to prepare residents for the successful practice of Emergency Medicine in whatever environment they choose. It is our goal to ensure that the resident masters both core content of knowledge and necessary clinical skills, as well as to prepare residents to graduate with skills to become leaders in our field.  Highlights of our program include:

    • ACGME and AOA long-standing and fully accredited.
    • PGY 1 – 4 program, with a split academic curriculum formatted for different levels of training.
    • A dedicated month of Orientation each July for the incoming class with didactic and clinical curricula centered on the approach to common emergency department complaints and procedures.
    • The faculty and residents care for more than 150,000 patients a year in our Emergency Departments, more than any other system in the Delaware Valley. Einstein’s main campus alone sees over 90,000 patients a year.
    • The spectrum of illness is vast and the level of acuity is high at Einstein. This is exemplified by our admission rates to intensive care level settings, which is twice the national average, and an overall admission rate that is 36% higher than the national average reported by the Centers for Disease Control.
    • High acuity, high volume trauma experiences with Emergency Medicine-led trauma resuscitations. Our residents alternate responsibility for the primary management of every trauma patient with the senior residents from the Department of Surgery. Managing the airways for every trauma is the responsibility of our residents alone.
