Welcome to the University of Maryland Emergency Medicine Residency Program!
Residents in all three programs benefit from an intense and comprehensive training. Upon completion of our program, physicians are prepared to work at inner-city or rural hospitals and in community or university academic settings. Graduates are eligible for certification by the American Board of Emergency Medicine.
Our residents are encouraged to prepare manuscripts for submission to professional journals. We are committed to teaching and mentoring. We constantly encourage the faculty and residents to contribute to the continued development of the curriculum and the program. Please read on to see what we offer! Our residency prides itself on innovation in emergency medicine education.
We believe strongly that residency is not simply a time when young physicians develop clinical excellence; it is also a time to learn about getting involved in the specialty and becoming a leader…in the workplace, in the community, in academics, and in national organizations. Our curriculum is geared toward teaching not only clinical excellence but also leadership and academic skills.
