Physician Observerships

NewYork-Presbyterian offers specialized medical training on specific protocols and procedures through no hands-on clinical observation. This is an informal shadowing experience that allows participants to attend patient rounds, visit inpatient wards, outpatient clinics and attend teaching conferences within the department. Each observership is tailored to the interests and the needs of the visitor. Observerships are not eligible to be considered as academic or clinical credit and cannot be considered formal training. Participation in our observership program does not have any bearing on any pending or future internship / fellowship / job applications. The observership programs are offered for a minimum of 1 month period, and maximum of 3 months. All inquiries must be made a minimum of 90 days prior to the requested participation dates.

Medical Conferences

NewYork-Presbyterian collaborates with hospitals, medical societies and physicians to explore and potentially co-host educational medical conferences.. Certain conferences provide the attendees the opportunity to earn continuing medical education (CME) credits.
