Rotations

We are a four year (R1 – 4) program. Our explanation for why is very simple. There is a lot to learn in emergency medicine and it takes time to master it all. And mastery, not simply competency is our goal. Our residency seeks to train the future leaders of emergency medicine. And leaders should be outstanding clinicians.

We structure our program to provide residents an opportunity to learn the basics of EM, and then add additional layers of experience and clinical acumen. Our 4 year curriculum affords time to learn to teach, and to explore individual clinical, educational, or research interests. Many of our residents pursue careers in academic emergency medicine. Some pursue fellowships after completing the residency, while others secure full time or part time faculty positions straight out of residency.
