Scholarly pursuits by residents are highly encouraged and supported. By the beginning of a resident’s PGY2 year most residents have selected a mentor to help them with their scholarly work. In addition, many residents may elect to take a “research month” to pursue in depth scholarly activity during their PGY2 and PGY3 years.
The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research is a unique, disease-oriented biomedical research institution dedicated to advancing science located on the North Shore campus. More than 100 physicians and scientists study disease at all levels – from molecular biology to patient-oriented research – and translate their scientific findings into practical use. The institute provides training, monetary support and personnel to help residents with their research projects. In addition, each pediatric division is involved in a number of research initiatives and they welcome resident participation. These projects include those involving bench research, clinical research, performance-improvement methodology and population health.
Northwell Health sponsors an annual Resident Academic Day, where residents throughout the health system compete for awards, and the Department of Pediatrics sponsors a Resident Research Day and a Quality Symposium. In addition, each year a number of residents present their work at national meetings. The program directors and faculty are committed to fostering a resident's academic pursuits.
If a resident’s paper is accepted for presentation at a national meeting the program will pay the resident’s reasonable travel expenses.
Below is a list of Publications and Presentations from CCMC residents from the last few academic years.
As the medical industry continues to evolve, so must physicians. Growth and development as a physician is essential to providing excellent patient care and advancing the field of medicine. Professional evolution requires a dedication to enhancing your medical knowledge and skills over time, networking with other health professionals, and managing your debt and general financial health. We offer our trainees mentorship and other opportunities to help prepare them for their future endeavors.
Advanced subspecialty training
During your residency you will have the opportunity to rotate through a number of subspecialty areas including neonatology, adolescent medicine, cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery, and medical genetics. If you wish to continue your education in those fields, we provide one-on-one mentorship with physicians board-certified in yoru field of interest and 13 subspecialty pediatric fellowship training programs.
We hold regular board examination review sessions for all PGY3 residents to review topics centered in the American Board of Pediatrics curriculum. Since initiating this program in 2010, it has lead to significant higher board pass rates for our trainees.
The Physician Leadership Institute offers a wide array of programs that collectively serve physician leaders at all levels of the organization. These programs aim to recruit, develop, and retain the talent necessary to achieve Northwell Health’s organizational goals by developing the necessary skill sets among physicians to allow them to prosper in high visibility leadership positions.
Practice management training
Being a resident in one of the country’s largest health care systems puts you at a unique advantage. Throughout the training program, residents learn about how to navigate and leverage the resources of health care systems, strategic elements of practice management and how to adapt and grow in the changing health care landscape.
