Interview with Dr. Dorian Alexander, Program Director, on EMRA Hangouts
Located in Brooklyn, NY
Brookdale, now one of the largest nonprofit voluntary teaching hospitals in Brooklyn, began as one small building rising amidst the vacant fields and scattered farms where the towns of Brownsville, East New York and Canarsie come together.
Today, the hospital covers a 10-acre campus plus six Brookdale Family Care Centers. The original building has endured and so too has the spirit and philosophy of those who struggled to build, equip and staff what they termed a haven of healing for all in need.
The Emergency Medicine Residency
As a teaching hospital, the core faculty and attending physicians at Brookdale are dedicated to training new doctors. We are a three-year ACGME accredited Emergency Medicine residency program in a NYS Trauma, Stroke and STEMI Center located in Brooklyn, NY. Our Emergency Department also serves the pediatric population and we are equipped with all on-site specialties. We are staffed by board certified physicians and a team of trained nurses, physician assistants and patient care technicians. Our EM didactic is a mixture of M&M presentations, lectures, small group case-based sessions, Journal Club, Simulation, written and oral board review, along with attendance at local/regional conferences.
Electronic Medical Records
Epic is the EMR software utilized throughout the hospital and in all of our outpatient ambulatory clinics. This enables patient care to continue beyond the ED and supports your training wherever you may be. It allows filmless radiology and uniquely allows physicians outside the Brookdale ED remote access.
