Research opportunities
The Emergency Medicine Residency promotes clinical research, as well as public health research. Diverse research opportunities are readily available to our residents.

Academic development
Through journal club and a conference series on statistical methods and research design, residents develop an understanding of the research process and acquire skills for a successful career in academic emergency medicine. Residents are required to complete a scholarly project during their residency and funding is available for residents to present their project at national conferences.

Leadership and career development
The progression from OGME-1 through OGME-4 brings gradually increasing clinical responsibilities. In the clinical arena, residents at all levels are taught leadership and management skills that prepare them for any practice setting. Residents are given the opportunity to participate in medical student education. Residents are supervised at all times by a dedicated, full-time EM-boarded clinical core faculty.

Residents have elective time in the latter half of their residency. This time provides opportunities for residents to get more clinical experience in a specific area. Residents may also use this time to complete major academic projects.
