Committed to the Best Training in Emergency Medicine
Regardless of their individual academic area of expertise, each faculty member is committed to providing our residents with the very best training in emergency medicine.
The program has long been a leader in the field of emergency ultrasound education. All faculty members are fully credentialed in ultrasound and all residents fulfill criteria for ultrasound certification. The Emergency Medicine Residency Program has published two major texts and many research articles and chapters on the topic.
Several of the faculty members are trained in both emergency medicine and critical care, providing residents with a unique educational experience in the Emergency Department and when working in one of our critical care units. Our ultrasonography exposure and training add even more depth to the critical care emphasis our residency provides.
