Our goal is to prepare Emergency Physicians to excel in any hospital or environment in the world, including the operational environment and under other austere conditions. A strong focus on officer and leadership development sets our program apart from our civilian counterparts. Our curriculum is challenging but ultimately rewarding. Upon completion, you will be the most well-rounded, self-reliant, and confident emergency physician possible. The academic tradition and core values of our program produces graduates who excel in leadership and academic positions, both in and out of the Navy. We encourage participation in a wide range of professional, academic, and leadership opportunities that prepare trainees for success and rapid promotion. Our curriculum blends clinical experiential learning with deliberate procedural practice in a variety of educational models, simulation experience, flipped-classroom didactics, leadership seminars, and field exercises.
