We’re not only dedicated to providing exceptional clinical care, but also to serving our patients and their families with compassion and warmth. By training the next generation of healthcare providers, we hope to improve the health of our community.

Phelps Family Medicine Residency Program

Since its accreditation in 2011, the Phelps Family Medicine Residency Program has been instrumental in fulfilling the need for primary care physicians in New York State and beyond. More than 100 of our physicians have volunteered to teach in our program, and three of our graduates are now on the residency faculty team.

Our residency program is the first family medicine residency to be established in New York since 1995.

This program is the result of a collaborative effort between Phelps Hospital, Northwell Health, Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine (the sponsoring academic institution) and Open Door Family Medical Centers. Open Door is a Federally Qualified Health Center and an industry leader in the medical home model. Two of our residents have gone on to practice there.

Our first class graduated in 2015 and our residents now practice medicine in hospitals, medical centers, and offices across the country. To learn more about the Phelps Family Medicine Residency Program, please visit http://phelpsresidency.org/.

Simulation Training

Medical and trauma care simulation on instructor-controlled mannequins is part of our program at the Hoch Center. We use ambulance and patient simulators to give students an experience that is as close to real life as possible.

Students will practice loading and unloading patients, providing treatment inside an ambulance, injecting “drugs” into patients, and treating a variety of issues such as cardiac arrest and constricted airways. The mannequins react to treatments in a variety of ways that are true-to-life and will prepare students for practicing real emergency medicine. Each scenario will be recorded, so instructors may provide useful feedback.
