Carilion Clinic - Virginia Tech Carilion Emergency Medicine Residency

Virginia Tech Carilion Emergency Medicine (VTCEM) is a PGY1-3 categorical emergency medicine residency with an emphasis on developing leaders in the field of emergency medicine. During training, our residents learn to use evidence-based medicine to develop clinically sound and culturally sensitive treatment plans. Our graduates practice in diverse geographic and clinical settings. In the past five years, 40% of VTCEM graduates have gone on to fellowships or into academic medicine.  

Carilion Clinic Emergency Medicine faculty provide emergency care across six Emergency Departments (EDs) in southwest Virginia (SWVA). The only Level 1 Trauma Center and Pediatric ED in the region, Carilion Medical Center (CMC) is the tertiary/quaternary referral hospital for a catchment area of 6,000 square miles with a population of 1.5 million. CMC sees over 95,000 annual ED visits and over 2,000 annual trauma activations. A longitudinal pediatrics curriculum, with pediatric ED shifts interspersed into ED rotations, ensures that residents are exposed to all seasonal variations of pediatric emergency care.
