History

The training program consists of didactic instruction, supervised clinical experience, and structured administrative and laboratory experience designed around a core curriculum to prepare the graduate to be able to successfully challenge the examination for certification of the American Board of Emergency Medicine. The resident is evaluated formally by one-on-one observations of patient care, standardized oral exams, patient surveys, MD Challenger Assessments, regular in-service examinations, and supervising faculty to ensure the trainee's progress.
