A Welcome from the Program Director:

Welcome to the website of the Arnot Health Emergency Medicine residency. Our mission is to provide an education and culture for individuals to become well-rounded emergency physicians who are able to work in any environment, with a focus on rural and community emergency medicine.


The last couple of years have highlighted the criticality of Emergency Medicine in our nation’s healthcare system. With more sick patients than our healthcare system was designed to accommodate and an evolving understanding of care during a pandemic, Emergency Physicians truly are on the frontline each and every day. We have a duty and the opportunity to see people on the worst day of their lives and intervene to make meaningful differences in their outcomes. We treat people without regard to race, religion, gender identity, political affiliation, or ability to pay for care. As an Emergency Physician, in a matter of moments, you have to forge a connection with a complete stranger and establish trust to the point that they would quite literally put their life in your hands.

The pandemic has highlighted how rapidly the science of medicine is evolving, with constantly changing knowledge and recommendations, requiring a discerning approach and a commitment to lifelong learning.


Emergency Medicine is a rewarding field to choose. Arnot Ogden is an excellent place to train. Our program is unique in that we focus on community and rural medicine. Our main site is a community hospital that serves the city of Elmira and is the receiving hospital for the surrounding tri-county area. Our hospital is a stroke center and a STEMI center. While we are not a trauma center, we see plenty of trauma given the distance between our hospital and the closest trauma center. We have a very close working relationship with our local EMS providers, as most of our region’s paramedics trained at Arnot, and our residents spend time riding with our local agency. Several of our faculty are very involved in EMS medical direction in the region, providing opportunities for additional resident involvement.


The training environment at Arnot Ogden is unique and similar to the type of practice upon which a majority of graduating EM residents ultimately settle. Residents from our emergency medicine training program are well rounded, superb physicians equipped to practice in any setting.

Thank you for your interest in our program,
