Welcome to the Emergency Medicine Residency at Einstein Medical Center. Our fully accredited long-standing residency program is dedicated to bringing breadth and depth to Emergency Medicine education.
Emergency Medicine training at Einstein Medical Center will expose you to a wide variety of patients with a broad spectrum of illness and injury. Einstein Medical Center is a Level One Trauma Center with over 100,000 annual ED visits serving a predominantly urban patient population with a mix of medical, surgical, and trauma related pathology.
The Emergency Medicine faculty is composed of board certified Emergency Physicians who are committed to resident education whose knowledge, skills, and insight will help you develop into an exceptional Emergency Physician.
The Emergency Medicine Research Program at Einstein Medical Center is designed to provide residents with an opportunity to learn basic research methodology and analytic techniques important to the practice of emergency medicine. Our faculty and fellows are also busy conducting their own research on a broad range of emergency medicine topics. Our clinical research program employs a full time research coordinator and research assistants who are physically present in the emergency department 24 hours per day, seven days per week to assist with clinical research trials Take a moment to look at some of our recent program highlights, and I am sure you will agree that our faculty, fellows, and residents are leading contributors to the literature of Emergency Medicine. While a diverse patient population, strong faculty, and active research program all contribute to the success of the program, our greatest asset is our Emergency Medicine Residents. Our residents come from diverse cultural, educational, and social backgrounds, but their work ethic, caring, compassion, and camaraderie are uniquely similar, and second to none. Thank you for your interest in the Emergency Medicine Residency at Einstein Medical Center. On behalf of Einstein Medical Center, and faculty and staff of the Department of Emergency Medicine I wish you the best of luck as you enter the next phase of your medical education. If you have any questions or would like to discuss our program in more detail, please feel free to call Merle Carter, MD, Program Director or me any time.
On behalf of the faculty and resident staff, I would like to welcome you to Emergency Medicine Residency. As you will see, Einstein has a great deal to offer and we are proud of the many accomplishments of our residents and our faculty.
The Emergency Medicine Residency Program at Einstein is a four-year training program, offering our residents 25% more training than other three-year programs. Senior residents “run the ED” and are responsible for the overall management of the department and supervision of junior residents. They also direct the trauma team’s activities every other day. The graduating resident is exposed to additional training not typical of other three- year programs including Administration, Research, Burns, Neurosurgery, ENT, Ophthalmology, Toxicology, Neurology, Emergency Psychiatry, and four months of Pediatrics and Pediatric Critical Care.
We offer our residents the resources and advantages of a major teaching institution, without losing sight of the individual. Although we are among the largest tertiary care facilities in Pennsylvania, the Medical Center is a place where each resident’s individual and educational goals are of prime importance to us. Our mission is to prepare physicians for the rigors and challenges of clinical practice. We are confident that our graduates are well trained and well rounded. As a testament to our achievements, our national pass rate for the American Board of Emergency Medicine written exam is 100%, and the Oral Board pass rate is over 98% overall, well over the national average.
Although some of you may not join us for postgraduate training, we wish all of you the best of luck in your career of Emergency Medicine and if there is anything that we can do to answer your questions, please do not hesitate to contact our program.
