Goals and Philosophies of the Program
This training program is designed to prepare the resident to achieve clinical expertise in emergency medicine while at the same time gaining a solid academic foundation. The graduate will achieve expertise in clinical emergency medicine in order to gain comfort handling a wide variety of patients in any setting. At the end of training, the resident will be skilled at recognizing life-threatening emergencies and be an expert at initiating life support measures in a rapid and efficient manner. Ultimately, the resident will be able to diagnose, stabilize and manage any patient presenting to the emergency department in a confident and efficient manner. Once the resident has gained a strong clinical experience, he is given exposure to administrative material so that he can begin to acquire leadership skills in the specialty of Emergency Medicine. Based on the premise that all physicians are called upon to teach during their entire careers, the program will use a number of techniques to help residents acquire experience in clinical bedside teaching and supervision of procedures.
The program is specifically designed to ensure that the resident will be successful in meeting the challenges of each phase of education to which they are exposed. The PGY-III and PGY-IV will be given graded and progressive supervision, responsibility for medical students and the house staff rotators. During these opportunities, the residents will be given specific instructions on the methods of teaching so that they will be successful in their efforts.
In addition to the departmental rotations, each resident will participate in the following programs:
