Yash Chavda

I am currently an Emergency Medicine
resident at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx.
I earned my medical degree from NYIT College
of Osteopathic medicine, and completed my
undergraduate degrees in biology and
psychology at CUNY Baruch College in 2010. I
have been a New Yorker since my family
immigrated to the US from India in the 1990’s,
growing up in Woodside, Queens. I am interested in ultrasound, administration, and taking care of critically ill patients. I enjoy working with my amazing co-residents and teaching medical students. I have also been involved in authoring and editing First Aid for the USMLE for the past few years. Outside of the ER, I am interested in many things: photography, web/graphic design,
computers, video games, science fiction books,
being a foodie, and travelling around the
world with my amazing wife (whenever we
actually get the chance).


Taylor Surles

My name is Taylor Surles, and I am an EM resident at SUNY Downstate. I graduated
from Texas A&M with a B.S. in Biomedical Science and a minor in Spanish. I went to
medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch. I can often be seen wearing the world’s most comfortable pair of cowboy boots with my scrubs, saying things like “y’all”, and drinking homemade sweet tea. I have interests in
International Emergency Medicine, Medical Education, and being a clinical monster.
Outside of the hospital, I enjoy watching movies, traveling, visiting good craft breweries, and spending time with friends. Lastly, I am eternally grateful for this opportunity, and can’t wait to see what the future holds.




I am an EM resident at Mount Sinai Beth Israel. I grew up in a small town in Bergen County, New Jersey called Old Tappan and was initially interested in Emergency Medicine from re-runs of the show E.R. (go George Clooney!) and from joining the local volunteer ambulance corps. I am a graduate of the Accelerated B.S/M.D Program from Penn State University and Jefferson Medical College (now called Sidney Kimmel Medical College). Now as an Emergency Medicine resident, my interests lie in Ultrasound and Medical Education (and learning how to take care of critically ill patients, of course). I am also the Vice Chair of New York ACEP's Residency Committee and have been to state and national conferences as a member of ACEP and to present research. In my free time, you can find me running on the East River Trails (or on a Citibike), watching a new movie (Arrival is fantastic), eating udon noodles (Tsuru Ton Tan, trust me) or cheering for my favorite local sports teams (will not admit in public that I'm a Nets fan). I'm really excited to be a part of ALL NYC EM and to any readers, please feel free to reach out to us with any questions (especially the snarky parenthetical kind).

I am currently a resident in the department of emergency medicine at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Roosevelt.  I was born and raised in the south and until residency had always lived below the Mason Dixon Line.  I earned a Mechanical Engineering degree from Georgia Tech and worked as a business consultant before I ended up at Emory Medical School.  Currently I am involved with the St. Luke’s Roosevelt Medical Board Executive Committee, the GME committee and have found a variety of ways to keep myself entertained and busy.  My current academic interests lay in finding an intersection between resident medical education and ED administration.  I want to spend my career educating residents on process engineering skills, patient flow, and the role a provider plays for departmental solvency.  My weekends off are spent with 2 small dogs and a supportive husband.  Activities often involve SLR shenanigans, wrecking my apartment to suit my interior design schemes, or searching for dog friendly craft beer serving establishments.

Patrick is a second year resident at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s-Roosevelt. He grew up in  New Jersey just a few miles from NYC. He was an EMT at Georgetown and received  his Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics…. so he was one of the cooler kids on campus.  He went to medical school at NYU, and was originally planning to do Internal Medicine. He had a change of heart when he rotated at an Emergency Department in Ghana. He is the Chair of the EMRA Education Committee, currently completing the EMRA/ACEP Policy Mini-Fellowship, and recently completed the CORD Scientific Speak Apprenticeship Program. He has an interest in education, policy, and general nerdiness.








I am an Emergency Medicine Resident at The Brooklyn Hospital Center. I am extremely excited and passionate about emergency medicine with a special interest in education. Specifically, teaching through lectures at conferences, online websites, social media and during shifts. I am also interested into incorporating simulation into emergency medicine education as it is a valuable teaching tool. Training in New York City surrounds me with other physicians who share this passion for teaching. I am excited to learn and grow from their mentorship while teaching our future EM doctors. To be a part of the ALLNYC EM is truly an honor.

I grew up in Boston, Massachusetts and attended the The University of Massachusetts Amherst and then University of Massachusetts Worcester for medical school. Residency has brought me to NYC and I am loving every minute of it. Besides emergency medicine I love sports, especially basketball. I spend my free time at the basketball court or watching the greats of the NBA.

Felipe Teran

I am a senior Emergency Medicine Resident and clinician educator apprentice at Mount Sinai Medical Center in NYC. I'm interested in medical education, in the science of resuscitation and the use of point-of-care utrasound. I believe that passion, curiosity and discipline are the base of meaningful learning. Fostering these virtues is my challenge as an educator.

I am originally from Chile, where I completed medical school and fell in love with emergency care while working at one of the busiest public hospitals in Santiago. I moved to New York in 2012 to train in Emergency Medicine and found home in Brooklyn. When I'm not working, you will find me cooking, running or biking the streets of NY.


Sally Bogoch

I am a Canadian, nurse, now EM resident passionate about education- online, conference, and especially at the bedside. While unsure what the future holds, the crystal ball shows academic emergency medicine, with notes of simulation and a focus on mentorship. When not doctoring, I spend my time outside- biking in Brooklyn, running with my pup, or skiing too fast at home in the Rocky Mountains. It most certainly is a privilege to be among the greats of ALLNYC EM.
