St. Barnabas Hospital, which is a part of SBH Health System, is a 461-bed, not-for-profit, nonsectarian, acute care community hospital. In addition, SBH is also a NY State-designated Stroke Center, AIDS Center and Trauma Center.
We are a large urban ED with an annual census of over 90,000 patients, and a level II ACS certified Trauma Center in the Bronx. Both blunt and penetrating traumas are well-represented in our census. In addition, we have a very active bedside toxicology consult service run by our two board-certified medical toxicologists, as well as an RDMS-certified and fellowship-trained ultrasound director. All of our faculty members are active and committed to resident education. The emergency medicine residency is a fundamental pillar of the hospital and has been educating residents for over 25 years.
Our location is ideal. SBH is located in an area that allows exposure to a dynamic population in need of good medical care, while also providing access to truly ill trauma patients. Additionally, the cultural and social benefits of the Bronx and the rest of NYC are all a short distance away. Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island and the suburbs of NYC are all readily accessible through public transportation and have an inexhaustible array of activities to satisfy whatever you enjoy.

Pharmacists completing this residency will be competent practitioners of direct patient care in any emergency medicine environment. They will be accountable for achieving optimal drug therapy outcomes as members of the health care team. These pharmacists will exercise skill in educating other health care professionals, patients, and the community on drug-related topics. Also, the pharmacist will be able to integrate the accumulated experience and knowledge gained during previous training and transform it into improved pharmaceutical care for patients who are critically ill and that need emergent care. They will demonstrate professional maturity by following a personal philosophy of practice, monitoring their own performance, exhibiting commitment to the profession, and exercising leadership in improving the efficiency and safety of the medication-use system.
This residency is co-sponsored by Touro College of Pharmacy, and thus has an emphasis in academia to provide a well-rounded and unique opportunity to advance as clinically and as academicians.
