2019 allnycem fellows


Suman Gupta

This Cali girl found herself in Brooklyn for an Emergency Medicine Residency at Maimonides after a pit stop in Columbus for medical school at The Ohio State University. She grew up in San Diego and went to undergrad at University of California, Berkeley, where she received degrees in Psychology and Conservation and Resource studies.

Suman had various jobs such as researching bioluminescent gene markers, tea serving, cooking for a food truck, producing a music festival, and nannying before her career in EM. Her academic interests include Social Emergency Medicine, which looks at the social determinants of health as they interface with use of the ED, Ultrasound, and how to promote wellbeing.

When not hanging out at Maimo, she spends her time trying to see the world, cooking, yoga-ing, finding dance parties, and watching weird sci-fi.

Mary McLean

Mary is an EM resident at St. John’s Riverside/Montefiore in Yonkers. She is an Oregon native, earned her MD from OHSU, and has background in bioengineering and microelectronics. Her EM interests include education, cardiology, EKGs, ultrasound, and procedural medicine. Outside of work, she enjoys pets, nature, cooking, caffeine, crime documentaries, action movies, trying new foods, and goofing around with her husband in NYC.


Kristen Ng

Kristen Ng is a third year resident in the NYU/Bellevue Department of Emergency Medicine. She is a native New Yorker, but ventured off to the midwest to work as a high school English teacher in Chicago. She then returned to the city to attend the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Within emergency medicine, she is interested in how workplace culture affects patient safety, workplace violence and de-escalation, and medical education. On days outside of the hospital, you can find her concocting nut-free baked goods in her 4x2 feet kitchen, trying not to feel old in a dance class, or gluing things together to finally finish that children’s book she’s been trying to publish. One day, she’ll get a driver’s license. One day. 




Jillian Nickerson

Jillian Nickerson is a resident in Emergency Medicine at Mount Sinai. Originally from California, Jillian moved to the East Coast for college at Brown University and has lived in New York City since graduating. She received her medical degree and a master's in clinical research from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Within Emergency Medicine, she is interested in  Medical education and pediatrics. During residency, she has developed a simulation curriculum to teach residents about difficult deliveries and neonatal resuscitation and an EKG course for medical students. She plans to pursue a fellowship in Pediatric Emergency Medicine. In her free time she loves listening to
audiobooks, running in Central Park with her rescue dog, Lili, and learning how to make tamales from scratch.




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.





Trent is an Emergency Ultrasound Fellow at Mount Sinai- West.  He 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. He is a graduate of the Accelerated B.S/M.D Program at Penn State University and Jefferson Medical College (now called Sidney Kimmel Medical College). His interests lie in Ultrasound and Medical Education (and learning how to take care of critically ill patients, of course). He has been to state and national conferences as a member of ACEP and to present research. In his free time, you can find him running on the East River Trails (or on a Citibike), watching a new movie (A Quiet Place is fantastic), eating udon noodles (Tsuru Ton Tan) or cheering for his favorite local sports teams (he will not admit in public that he is a Nets fan).


Reflections on the AllNYC Fellowship:

I think ALLNYCEM was an excellent networking opportunity and the chance to speak in front of a large interested crowd. I think I have a definite interest in medical education and ALLNYCEM served to strengthen that foundation by introducing me to a bunch of educators who have similar ideals as me. I would recommend it to those who have even a slight interest in academics.


Annemarie completed residency at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Roosevelt and is now a simulation fellow at Maimonides.  She was born and raised in the south and until residency had always lived below the Mason Dixon Line.  She earned a Mechanical Engineering degree from Georgia Tech and worked as a business consultant before attending Emory Medical School. Her academic interests lay in finding an intersection between resident medical education and ED administration.  Her weekends off are spent with 2 small dogs and a supportive husband.  Activities often involve Brooklyn shenanigans, wrecking her apartment to suit her interior design schemes, or searching for dog friendly craft beer serving establishments.  


Reflections on the AllNYC Fellowship:

The fellowship was helpful in refining my skills as a teacher and gave me career coaching resources outside of my home institution.


Ryland is an attending physician at Clara Maass Medical Center, a community site in Northern New Jersey.  He completed medical school and residency at NYU. Prior to medical school, he attended The College of William and Mary where he received a B.S. in Kinesiology and a Ph.D. in Applied Science.  When not working, he and his wife devise futile strategies to combat the physical and psychological take-over of their lives by their two young, active children; they love playgrounds, eating brownie batter, and reading Golden books.


Reflections on the AllNYC Fellowship:

The fellowship provided me the opportunity to help plan large educational conferences, present education content to large groups of EM residents, and work aside several of EM’s top educational leaders. These experiences will assist me in leading health-based educational groups.

Reflections on the AllNYC EM Fellowship:

The AllNYC EM fellowship introduced me to the leaders of EM in New York, giving me access to experiences and mentorship well outside my own residency. Through these faculty I learned about developing a niche, finding the right job, managing an early academic career and more. And that's just the mentorship outside the direct skill set gained from participating in the development of a conference. The fellowship was truly an invaluable experience that directly influenced my path toward medical education.





Patrick 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 has served as Chair of the EMRA Education Committee, completed the EMRA/ACEP Policy Mini-Fellowship, and the CORD Scientific Speak Apprenticeship Program.  He was also selected to Envision's Emerging Leadership program, and completes his training in November 2018 with a presentation at the National Clinical Leadership Conference.  He has an interest in education, policy, and general nerdiness.


He is the Associate Medical Director at Desert Springs ED in Las Vegas, NV.  He is actively involved in Advanced Practice Provider (APP) education, Nevada ACEP, and steering his group of 60 physicians and 50 APPs. The group's plan is to start a residency in 2020, with which he hopes to be very involved.








Pardeep grew up in Andover, Massachusetts and attended the The University of Massachusetts Amherst for undergraduate and then University of Massachusetts Worcester for medical school.  In 2017, he graduated Emergency Medicine Residency at The Brooklyn Hospital Center.  He then completed a Simulation Education Fellowship at Hartford Hospital has returned to work at The Brooklyn Hospital Center as the Emergency Department Simulation Director.  He is extremely excited and passionate about emergency medicine with a special interest in simulation and education. He spends his free time at the basketball court or watching the greats of the NBA. Go Celtics!


Reflections on the AllNYC Fellowship:

The ALL NYC EM Fellowship built the foundation for my career in education. In residency I became interested in teaching however the All NYC EM Fellowship was able to propel me to the next level. It gave me exposure to education at a regional and national level. It provided many opportunities to get involved, present and organize conference. I was able to give ideas for a large EM conference, help with planning, organization and even was able to present at it. These are experiences that were invaluable to my growth.  One learns what it takes to put on a large conference and other various education opportunities within the region. It allowed me to travel to a national education conference where I was able to learn from keynote speaker.  It gave me contacts not only throughout the region but also at a national level.  Most importantly there was incredible mentorship not only about education, but also about my personal career choices. There is a wide range of faculty with various expertise that are always available and want to provide feedback to improve myself as an educator. I am truly thankful and fortunate to have participated in the All NYC EM fellowship and highly encourage it to any resident interested in education. It inspired me to further my training in education through a Simulation Education Fellowship after residency.

Reflections on the AllNYC EM Fellowship:

The ALLNYCEM Fellowship was an excellent experience. It provided me with unique mentorship, expanded my network of collaborators and scholars in academic medicine and gave me tools to become a better educator. 



Sally Bogoch

Sally is a bleeding heart Canadian that is somehow stuck in New York (at least it's Brooklyn)! When she is not fantasizing about skiing, saying "eh" or riding her bike in the vast wilderness, she can be found cursing under her breath, bagel-eating, stoop-sitting, dog walking and generally happy in NYC. Sally works at Brooklyn's only Level 1 adult and pediatric emergency department at Maimonides Medical Center. There her faculty role is to recruit and train awesome people and form them into awesome emergency doctors. Her interests include mentorship, bedside teaching, small and large format conference design, and narrative medicine. Sally is an active member of the "AIRWAY" storytelling group, planning events and helping us tell the many stories that we acquire in the shoes of emergency doctors. 


Reflections on the AllNYC Fellowship:

The ALLNYC EM fellowship connected me to the finest emergency medicine educators in the region. Each of my mentors comes from a different program with a different personality - with different leadership and educational styles. This diversity and quality that exists in our city is irreplaceable. The opportunities that I have been afforded through ALLNYC EM are hands down the most valuable experiences of my training, outside of taking care of real patients.
