During the three years of training, residents spend a lot of their time in the ED, although during their first and second year they complement their ED training by rotating on other specialty services in a wide variety of hospital settings. This better prepares the resident for future employment in various practices and environments.
Residents have the unique opportunity to interact with local and state health officials and participate in meetings, conferences, planning, drills and exercises, as well as actual responses to public health events and emergencies.
In addition to the core curriculum, EM residents will participate in special sessions scheduled in lieu of grand rounds lectures. This gives them the opportunity to gain hands-on experience and practice in real-world type settings.
