Adam Rodrigues Chief Resident  Grew up in Westchester NY and spent my formative years listening to punk music, playing in bands and riding on ambulances. Spent summers hiking in the Adirondacks. Attended undergrad at Binghamton University where I studied Anthropology and Cinema. Got my medic and worked for a year before attending medical school at St. George's University, where I spent two years in Grenada (98% library, 2% SCUBA) and two in Brooklyn. Couldn't be happier to be training in the South Bronx!

Renee Morton Medical Student Coordinator  From: Vancouver, Canada  Undergrad: Univ. British Columbia  Grew up in the west coast rain and in the mountains. Worked in BC mountains heli skiing, researching in Sweden and eating pizza in Italy before ending up in medschool at St. George's.  Lincoln doesn't mess around: it's hard work, but excellent training and with great people.

Jennifer Drouet   Hey Guys! My name is Jenn. Some may know me as Jenny from the block. My family is from Guayaquil, Ecuador. I was born in Manhattan and raised in Queens. I have 3 brothers. I attended Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education at City College of NY and then graduated from SUNY Downstate. Pretty much I'm a NYC gal (Go Knicks, Giants, and Mets!). If I'm not hanging with my family or friends, I'm probably at home watching horror movies on my couch. I love listening to all different kinds of music and dancing salsa, bachata, merengue, etc. I'm an all around cheerful person, always smiling, love taking selfies and I live for a good laugh. Obviously I love EM! Lincoln is near and dear to me. I had the privilege of having Dr. Gernsheimer as my mentor, the man who started it all. I couldn't be happier at Lincoln where the diversity of the patient population and the comradery of the faculty make it one of the best places to practice EM in!

James Russell   Medical School: SGU  Undergraduate: Hamilton   I chose Lincoln for 2 reasons: The patient population and the residents/attendings. Because for me, at the end of the day, my goal is to have the skills to practice in any ER in the country. Lincoln provides that.  Other than that, the city is fine, the snow is bitter, and all the children are all above average.

Christina Ciraco  Medical Student Coordinator  Undergrad: SUNY Albany  Med School: NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine (NYCOM)  I grew up in the ‘burbs just north of the Bronx and have been living in Harlem since 2010. After college I dabbled in graphic design and worked as a clinical research coordinator and EMT. Outside of the ED you can find me biking, hiking, playing volleyball, frolicking in Central Park, traveling the world, or foraging for exotic food. I will also never say no to a dance party (FOMO for life). I love the craziness and diversity of this city and feel so lucky to be training at Lincoln.  EM interests: Wellness, Medical Education, International/Global Health
