University of Mississippi

The Emergency Medicine residency program at the University of Mississippi Medical Center was founded in 1986, with departmental status since 1994. We are a PGY 1-3 program and will match 11 residents to start July 1, 2015. Over 200 emergency physicians have graduated our program and currently practice in a wide range of settings. Many of our graduates stay in Mississippi or other Southeastern states; however, we have graduates practicing all across the country, and several internationally. Approximately 25% percent of our graduates pursue careers in academic medicine.
