The Boston Medical Center Emergency Medicine Residency is a 4-year training program based in an urban, academic, Level 1 trauma center in the heart of Boston. We are the first emergency medicine residency program in the City of Boston and one of the oldest in the Northeast.

Residents receive unparalleled training in trauma, point-of-care ultrasound, pediatric emergency medicine, EMS, and public health. We are the busiest emergency department and trauma center in New England with more than 130,000 visits/year. We have a dedicated pediatric ED as well as a close relationship with Boston Children’s Hospital through the Boston Combined Residency Program in Pediatrics (BCRP). We are the affiliate hospital for Boston EMS, provide medical control for the City of Boston, and serve as the receiving facility for the majority of traumatic injuries in the metropolitan area. In addition, we are an independent and influential academic department at both BMC and the Boston University School of Medicine. Finally, we offer fellowship training in ultrasound, EMS, and pediatric emergency medicine.
