Renowned research.
Our trauma research is presented at national symposia and used as a benchmark for training the region's lifesaving personnel, including local EMTs, firefighters, paramedics, and emergency staff from community hospitals. In fact, our research was used by the U.S. Government in the creation of a national program for regional trauma systems throughout the U.S. 

A great place to live and work.
In addition to an excellent salary and benefits package and a practice environment that is second to none, the Hudson Valley, just north of New York City, is a dynamic destination. Quality of life is enhanced by the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains’ beauty, elite colleges, select public and private schools, and numerous outdoor/recreation options. Add in fine dining, a strong economy and intrinsic civic pride, and the result is an in-demand locale for those committed to community health.
