Our mission is to train compassionate, patient-centered, clinically outstanding emergency physicians who are aggressively recruited by both community and academic medical centers. Providing the best comprehensive training in the country through our patient population, our training style, our unique style of mentorship, and our abundance of clinical opportunities is our mission.


Our vision is a patient-centered, resident-driven program in which learners receive the best emergency medicine training in the country. Our residency will exude a sense of camaraderie and a spirit of togetherness while maintaining the highest standards of personal accountability and professional humility. We will be known throughout our hospital and our community as physician leaders who serve through the delivery of outstanding clinical care, education, and research.


We value excellence in clinical training and believe that expertise in emergency medicine requires an abundance of patient interactions in a safe, supervised setting. Recognizing our institution’s excellence in critical care and trauma, we value immersive experiences in both.

We value hard work, self-discipline, a positive attitude, and a spirit of determination.

We value diversity and believe in a spirit of inclusion. Recognizing that we all come from different backgrounds, we strive to promote inclusion and to maximize each resident’s potential based on his or her individual strengths, interests, and goals.

We value camaraderie and promote a supportive, collaborative environment. EM residents spend more one-on-one time with their attendings than any other specialty throughout the hospital; we see this as an opportunity to foster mentorship, mutual trust and improved patient care. We believe that outstanding professional and personal mentorship is paramount to our success.

We value clinical autonomy and graded independence and pride ourselves on our residents’ sense of ownership of our emergency department.

We believe in and teach the importance of wellness and career sustainability. We strive to teach methods that strengthen resilience while fostering a safe environment for learning. We believe that career sustainability is strengthened through leadership development and involvement in niche learning in particular aspects of emergency medicine.
