HOFSTRA/NORTHWELL UROLOGY

Training Sites

General Surgery and Non-GU Surgery Rotations may occur at either the NSUH or LIJMC hospital campuses. Six weeks of surgical intensive care will be part of the Non-GU Surgery block.


Long Island Jewish Medical Center (LIJMC) and North Shore University Hospital (NSUH) are two tertiary referral centers in Long Island in very close proximity to one another. Oncology cases tend to be concentrated at the LIJMC campus while the focus of NSUH is more on benign urologic surgery including complex stone cases and male and female reconstructive surgery. A weekly resident clinic runs at each of the two campuses.

Forest Hills Hospital (FHH) serves an incredibly diverse patient population in Queens, NY. PGY-2 residents rotate here, with opportunity to develop autonomy and independence early in training. The rotation focuses on general urology in both the inpatient and outpatient settings and developing proficiency in office-based procedures. A weekly resident clinic also runs at this location.

 

Cohen Children’s Medical Center (CCMC) is the only dedicated children’s hospital in Long Island and the primary site for the pediatrics rotation. It is physically part of the LIJMC campus. Major pediatrics cases are performed at Cohen’s while ambulatory pediatric urology cases are performed in ambulatory surgery centers at LIJMC and Plainview Hospital.
