The emergency department specialty residency is focused in the care of critically ill and trauma patients. The goal for the resident is to be able to perform in a busy emergency department (ED). Several learning experiences involve the hospital’s ED, which has more than 150,000 visits per year. It is a university-based environment, staffed by physicians and residents from Emory University’s department of emergency medicine. A fast paced environment allows many opportunities for the resident to learn the essentials of emergency medicine and become an advanced practitioner in this area.
