Our PGY1 – PGY4 format enables us to provide our residents with strong clinical training along with additional skills and knowledge that will serve as the foundation of a rich, multi-dimensional career. We commit curriculum time, the wealth of resources in our department, and strong mentorship to help residents develop areas of interest so that, as their careers evolve, they will have the option to balance clinical work with other rewarding activities.

Five faculty members are dedicated to residency leadership, but all of our faculty members are actively involved in teaching, mentoring, and aiding resident career development in various capacities. The faculty consists of about 50 EM- boarded attendings. Seven are board-certified in pediatric emergency medicine, three are board-certified in toxicology, and others are fellowship-trained in critical care, EMS, health care policy, informatics, research, neuroepidemiology, and ED administration.
