    Episode 2: Mathew Nelson D.O. Emergency Medicine Program Director

    Dr. Matt Nelson is an emergency medicine physician who received his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from NYITCOM in 2001 and trained in emergency medicine at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset. He was selected as chief resident in his final year and subsequently completed a fellowship in emergency ultrasound.

    In addition to his numerous publications, he became program director of the prestigious emergency medicine residency at North Shore/LIJ-Zucker School of Medicine in 2014. As program director, Dr. Nelson has selected and trained hundreds of EM physicians, both DO and MD, over his career.  By reputation, both medical students and residents feel that their love of emergency medicine was fostered by Dr. Nelson and feel that their training would not be complete if he were not there to guide them in their training. Today, Dr. Nelson will not only shed light on his personal path to success but also give insight into what a residency looks for, particularly for osteopathic students, especially with the new changes recently instated by the NBME and USMLE.

Must-listen for all osteopathic medical students

This podcast has been extremely helpful with solidifying my specialty of choice and gaining insight into what is to come as an osteopathic medical student. It is incredibly informative with diverse guests (all DOs) and is a fantastic advocate for the profession.
