Our emergency medicine residency program provides both experiential and didactic training. 

Upon completion of our program, emergency medicine residents are equipped to treat emergent patients in any type of setting.

  • Clinical Rotations
    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.
  • Didactic Sessions
    The didactic curriculum consists of four major components. All components of the curriculum are required with any exceptions only as specified.
  • Emergency Medical Services
    The City of Buffalo and surrounding communities provide significant opportunities for emergency medicine residents to learn about emergency medical services (EMS) and EMS systems.
  • Emergency Ultrasound
    Bedside ultrasound is a clinical skill that every emergency physician should master. 
  • Pediatric Emergency Medicine´╗┐
    The goal for this track within our EM residency is to provide trainees with extra instruction and experience in the subspecialty of pediatric emergency medicine. 
  • Public Health
    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. 
  • Special Teaching Sessions
    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.
  • Simulation
    The University at Buffalo Emergency Medicine Residency offers a robust simulation experience to our residents. Every month a group of residents from each PGY class participates in simulation exercises at the University’s state of the art Behling Simulation Center.
