Our Residency Program: Innovative, Dynamic, Fast-Paced


Our emergency medicine residency program is one of the most dynamic in the U.S, offering residents the opportunity to work and learn in a large urban hospital setting surrounded by some of the brightest medical minds in the country. The program features a four-year track, which provides residents with the opportunity to spend their final year focusing on an area of interest, locally and potentially internationally, so they can develop expertise in a specialty. This is called the Focused Advanced Specialized Training (FAST) Program.
