Opportunity Abounds: A Four-Year Program and FAST
Our residency program is one of the oldest and most dynamic in the country, 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. In addition, residents have access to a broad range of opportunities at the safe, convenient Johns Hopkins Medical Campus in Baltimore, from seminars at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health to hands-on training at our state-of-the-art Simulation Lab.
Residents also have the opportunity to work and learn at other Baltimore-area medical centers, such as our Burn Unit at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Campus and the University of Maryland Medical Center’s R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center.
Our unique four-year program provides residents with the opportunity to spend their final year focusing on an area of interest so they can develop expertise in a specialty. Fourth-year residents take on the schedule of a typical academic faculty member while working under the guidance of a dedicated faculty mentor to become skilled in one of 12 specialties, such as disaster emergency medicine, ultrasound, research or EMS/special operations. We call this Focused Advanced Specialized Training.

Another big opportunity for new residents in the Hopkins program: Practicing and learning medicine in our new state-of-the-art emergency department which opened in 2012. The new ED is located on the ground floor of the spectacular new clinical buildings that Hopkins built on its East Baltimore campus. The new buildings include the Children’s Tower and the Cardiovascular and Critical Care Tower.
While there’s no question program residents have many exciting challenges at work, they also form strong friendships with peers and lasting professional relationships with many of the Hopkins faculty. There is also ample time to enjoy Baltimore, a cultural gem and one of the most dynamic cities on the East Coast, Maryland, Chesapeake Bay, Washington, D.C. and many other interesting nearby attractions also abound.
At the end of the day, the key goal of the entire program is to challenge, engage and inspire our residents so they emerge as world class leaders in the field of emergency medicine and academia.
