Senior Specialty Tracks

Senior specialty tracks are a unique feature of our program, and one that is immensely valuable to career development. These "mini-fellowships" during the PGY-4 year allow residents to develop their skills and knowledge further in an area of their interest, providing them with a niche within emergency medicine. Having a niche creates a dimension beyond clinical work along which to develop a gratifying career, and increasingly it provides an edge in the job market.

Our residents can offer employers not only their excellent clinical skills, but also such extras as the ability to develop critical care protocols, to teach ultrasound skills to others, to help institute a computerized charting system or to participate in ED administration. Employers in the community as well as those in academic environments appreciate this depth of skill.

Senior residents carry a reduced clinical load during their EM months to allow time for work with a mentor on projects. Seniors may develop a custom Specialty Track with a mentor, but standard Senior Specialty Tracks are available in:

  • Administration
  • Critical Care
  • EMS/Disaster Management
  • Global Health
  • Informatics
  • Pediatric Emergency Medicine
  • Research
  • Simulation
  • Sports Medicine
  • Ultrasound
