Maimonides Medical Center

History

Surrounded by the 2.5 million residents of Brooklyn, New York, Maimonides serves an incredibly varied patient population. Their patients speak many different languages and represent many different cultures. Given the diversity of their patients, Maimonides residents have the benefit of first hand experience with a broad range of pathology not available at other training centers. Their patients are a decade older on average than those seen in other urban ERs and reflect what others will be seeing in their ERs in ten years.

Because Maimonides has a long history of exemplary tertiary care, many of the sickest patients in Brooklyn are treated in the Maimonides Emergency Department. Trainees will benefit directly from the extensive critical care experience of the attending and nursing staff.
