Our residency is structured to encourage a resident's mastery of the knowledge, clinical skills and attitudes essential for the effective practice of emergency medicine (EM). Residents are provided the opportunity to develop their clinical maturity, judgment and technical ability under the guidance and supervision of a nationally recognized attending staff. Residents experience an increasing degree of patient care responsibilities in a high volume, inner-city emergency department.
