Message from the Chairman

Sharma Pic-July 2020.jpg

The start of the new academic year presents a wonderful opportunity for reflection on the past 12 months. For our Department, this has been one of the most exciting years. I am extremely proud of our unparalleled dedication to delivering excellent patient care and our groundbreaking work and achievements in medical education, innovation, and research. For their efforts, several faculty received substantial research grants to fund innovative and exciting research and awards for excellence in medical education and compassionate patient care. Several faculty members also assumed leadership roles on institutional and national committees. In addition, the Department, in collaboration with the Center for Virtual Care, continued to fulfill its educational mission with the launch of the new international telemedicine elective.


At this time of year, we also simultaneously bade farewell to the outgoing Class of 2022 residents and said hello to the incoming Class of 2026 emergency medicine residents. We wish them all well as they begin this stage of their careers in emergency medicine.


Looking toward the future, the 2022-2023 academic year promises to be exciting. This summer, we welcomed 13 new faculty members who are coming to us from top-rated institutions around the country. We expect several more research grants to be announced in the coming months and look forward to several of our faculty members and residents presenting at the national ACEP conference in the fall.


Coming off one of our most impressive years as a Department, I look forward to another strong year in 2022-2023. We will continue to confront the many challenges facing emergency departments across the U.S., including the continuing COVID-19 pandemic and the growing threat of monkeypox. I am proud of all of the work that we have done so far, and am confident that the Department will continue to grow and succeed.


We hope you enjoy this issue of the newsletter and look forward to another remarkable academic year.

Rahul Sharma, M.D., M.B.A., F.A.C.E.P.

Research & Scholarly Updates

Research Highlight

Dr. Junaid Razzak, Vice Chair of Research, recently published an article "Improving Trauma Care for Road Traffic Injuries Could Save Many Lives in Lower Income Countries" in The Lancet. The paper is part of a special series on road safety.

Dr. Razzak and colleagues identified more than 1,900 studies on road traffic injuries published within the past 20 years and narrowed their analysis to 28 containing mortality data. They estimated that more than 200,000 lives could be saved in a best-case scenario if complete trauma care was available to 100 percent of people who experienced road traffic injuries, and more than 100,000 lives could be saved in a more realistic scenario where trauma care is accessible to half of all road injury victims.

Dr. Razzak's research was featured in the Weill Cornell Medicine Newsroom.

Emergency Medicine Approved as Core Clerkship by Executive Medical Education Committee


Emergency Medicine has officially been approved as a core clerkship by the Executive Medical Education Committee for Weill Cornell Medical College. This is a momentous landmark for the Department of Emergency Medicine as we continue to expand our educational programs and initiatives.

The clerkship was developed by Dr. Kaushal Shah and Dr. Mary Mulcare, and is led by Dr. Mark Curato, Clerkship Director, and Dr. Tina Mathew, Assistant Clerkship Director. The clerkship offers medical students the opportunity to experience the full breadth of emergency medicine, from learning how to perform a focused history and develop a differential diagnosis, to performing a number of procedural skills and managing acutely sick patients. As part of the clerkship, students are also given an introduction into the rapidly expanding area of emergency telemedicine by our Center for Virtual Care (CVC) faculty.

CVC & Department of Emergency Medicine Launch International Telemedicine Elective


This spring, the Weill Cornell Medicine Center for Virtual Care (CVC) and the Department of Emergency Medicine launched its first international telemedicine elective in collaboration with the Office of International Medical Student Education. The two-week course, aimed at fourth-year medical students studying outside of the U.S., looks to instruct students on how telemedicine can be an effective and comprehensive method of care, both in the emergency room and beyond.

Throughout the course, students attended virtual lectures, shadowed telehealth clinicians and participated in simulated virtual patient encounters. In addition, each student conducted a digital health research project throughout the course. The projects focused on the use of telemedicine in specialties like anesthesiology, pediatrics and oncology. The students presented their projects in front of Department of Emergency Medicine and Weill Cornell Medicine Center for Virtual Care (CVC) faculty and administrators at the end of their two weeks.  

The Department first launched the telemedicine elective in 2017 for Weill Cornell and visiting domestic medical students. The international course offers students outside of Weill Cornell Medical College an opportunity to learn about our telemedicine offerings, how they benefit patients and what the future of care looks like.

2022 Healthcare Leadership & Management Scholars

HLM Scholars 2022 Announcement.png

Now in its seventh year, our Healthcare Leadership and Management (HLM) Scholars Program prepares medical students for future leadership roles in Emergency Medicine. The program offers medical students an opportunity to experience various aspects of healthcare management, including hospital administration and finance, clinical quality and patient safety, policy-making, and clinical operations management. Throughout their time in the program, the scholars will foster close relationships with senior management and gain valuable insight into the healthcare system as a whole.
