Message from the Director

The goal of our program is to empower each graduate with the skills required to practice quality emergency medicine and provide insight on how to balance career and personal goals. We provide residents with great clinical training from a stable and experienced faculty as well as guidance in managing the financial and personal challenges encountered after training.

We want our residents to not only be successful during training, but also happy in life.
