The UC Davis Emergency Medicine residency training program is an ACGME-accredited, 3-year, university-based program whose vision is to educate emergency physicians who will provide compassionate, state-of-the-art emergency care, and advance the field of emergency medicine in their careers as clinicians, educators, and researchers.
The program offers a unique two-site training model. The primary site, UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, is an urban, tertiary care academic medical center. It is the region’s only level-1 combined Adult and Pediatric trauma center, Sacramento’s safety net hospital for the underinsured, is home to the region’s only comprehensive burn center and comprehensive children’s hospital, and is one of four California Poison Control Centers. The secondary site, Northern California Kaiser Permanente in Sacramento, is an urban level-2 trauma center, and complements the primary site by offering robust clinical training in a number of subspecialties, including emergency medicine, within a comprehensive managed care network.
