Emergency Medicine Residency Program
Thank you for taking the time to visit our residency website. Our Emergency Medicine Residency Program is dedicated to providing an excellent educational environment which will prepare our graduates for successful and enjoyable careers in their pathways of choice (e.g. clinical, academic, fellowship or administrative).
The University of Texas School of Medicine at San Antonio and the University Hospital System together make an internationally prominent center of educational innovation and medical training. It is an ideal environment for the interchange of ideas and multidisciplinary professional growth. Our primary training facility, University Hospital, provides an extremely diverse and high acuity patient population. University Hospital in San Antonio is a Level I trauma center and serves as the preferred tertiary care referral hospital for South Texas. Together the UT School of Medicine and University Hospital offers our Emergency Medicine residents tremendous opportunities to work and learn in a combined University/County Hospital environment surrounded by some of the brightest minds in the country.
Our Emergency Medicine Residency Program provides a comprehensive Emergency Medicine curriculum that trains our graduates to be outstanding clinicians, educators and leaders in the field of Emergency Medicine. Our didactic curriculum is designed around case-based discussions and interactive learning activities. Our clinical rotation curriculum is designed to emphasize and provide optimal training in the areas of critical-care and resuscitation. University Hospital is certified and designated as a Level I trauma center, PCI cardiac care center, stroke center, pediatric burn center, and a therapeutic cooling center for cardiac arrest victims. Residents are exposed to these cases on a daily basis in the Emergency Department.
Our Emergency Medicine faculty members are committed to providing an outstanding education through bedside clinical teaching experiences as well as personal and professional mentoring. I am personally committed to maintaining an environment supportive of resident wellness. Our faculty and residents are extremely experienced, engaging and approachable. Some of our faculty have additional fellowship training in the areas of toxicology, wilderness medicine, critical care, EMS, Ultrasound, as well as Internal Medicine, and are able to provide multidisciplinary education at all times. Many of our faculty are nationally recognized leaders in Emergency Medicine. Our faculty also serve on local, regional, national and international organizations, as editors and writers for journals and textbooks and as emergency medicine representatives abroad on global health missions.
We are extremely excited about our program, our faculty, our residents and our students. Our program is seeking 10 candidates with excellent academic records, strong work ethics, and an eagerness to become experts in resuscitation. Ultimately, our ideal candidate is someone who has a great attitude and enjoys the adventure of emergency medicine as much as we do.
We look forward to meeting you.
