St. Louis University School of Medicine


SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital, an urban hospital with a high acuity emergency department, provides residents with an extensive, heterogeneous patient population from which to learn. Our large trauma volume provides an extraordinary clinical experience. A well- developed city prehospital system, the Missouri Poison Center located at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center, and aero-medical services provide excellent resources and learning opportunities for our residents.

The division's energetic faculty supervises the residents' clinical experience and teaches at the bedside to provide immediate feedback, along with weekly didactic sessions. Through progressive responsibility, residents acquire the skills to manage the flow of an emergency department, learn administrative skills and apply team care treatment and management processes to their future careers. They also develop additional skills as future teachers through mentoring of medical students in clinical and research settings. For example, in our one-of-a-kind Air Force C-STAR program, residents educate physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners in preparation for combat deployment. We also provide unique educational exercises in the simulation laboratory and cadaver laboratory.
