Advocate Christ Medical Center

ACMC is a 749 bed Level 1 Trauma Center located in Oak Lawn, IL, just southwest of Chicago.  It ranks nationally in many specialties and is known across the country for excellence in teaching and research.  The Emergency Department is known nationwide as one of the highest volume and highest acuity centers in the country, with approximately 120,000 patient visits and more than 4500 trauma activations each year. 

We offer an intense 3 year curriculum packed with 24 months of emergency medicine, 3 months of electives, 2 months dedicated to trauma and a longitudinal pediatric emergency medicine experience in our brand new Pediatric Emergency Department.  In addition our residents rotate through our MICU, Neuro ICU, PICU and Trauma ICU gaining a wide range of skills in the resuscitation and management of the critically ill patient. Residents choose electives ranging from pharmacy, trauma, toxicology, EMS, ultrasound, and administration to other custom made electives including a brand new international medicine elective in Tanzania.  Christ boasts the longest running ultrasound fellowship in the country and currently staffs 10 US fellowship trained attendings.  Our residents typically complete approximately 300 scans in their time, including a 2 week dedicated individual training session w/ a US trained fellow.
