Emergency Medicine Residency

Eight categorical positions per year are available for our three-year Emergency Medicine residency.

Didactic Curriculum

We have developed a dynamic and engaging curriculum to cover the breadth and depth of emergency medicine knowledge.  Weekly conference will generally include 4 hours of in-person didactics augmented with 1 hour asynchronous, self directed learning per week.

Our curriculum is organized into 4 weeks system based blocks.

We are focused on utilization of dynamic teaching methods, such as small group case based learning, Journal clubs, procedure/simulation lab, mock oral boards, inter-class medical jeopardy contests, rapid fire lightning lectures, and ultrasound practicals.  As residents progress in their training they are expected to organize and provide lecture content themselves. The residency program provides the opportunity to attend one national conference per year, with additional funding available for residents who are invited to present their research at conferences.
