Emergency Medicine Residency Program

About Our Program

Affiliated with the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), the program is fully accredited, and provides the 24 emergency medicine residents a unique balance of direct supervision, didactics, and extensive hands-on training. There are 10 full-time faculty members, all of whom are board certified in Emergency Medicine. They are dedicated, enthusiastic, and provide 32 hours per day of supervision.

The program produces emergency physicians with the skills, medical judgment, clinical maturity, and personal confidence to function effectively as practitioners, teachers, and community leaders. The curriculum is designed to foster an interest in the continued study of medicine, and to prepare physicians to make significant and ongoing contributions to the specialty.

Our program is committed to educating emergency medicine physicians who can provide highly skilled care in any Emergency Department, rural or urban, utilizing the best clinical skills and academic knowledge that the specialty has to offer.
