Welcome to our website and thank you for your interest in the Georgetown University Hospital / Washington Hospital Center emergency medicine residency training program!
Our vision is simple: to train exceptional emergency clinicians with a drive and passion to have a meaningful, career-long impact in the clinical arena and beyond.
Our training philosophy is focused on providing you with the experiences, tools, resources and opportunities to flourish in both academic and community emergency medicine.
At its core, our program is all about the people. We have an incredibly talented group of faculty who are dedicated to you and your education. Our faculty come from over 20 different training programs spanning the U.S., providing you with a great wealth and depth of experience, as well as a ready-made and far-reaching professional network.
We are especially proud of our exceptional group of residents who have come to us from near and far, and program alumni who have secured highly sought-after opportunities throughout the country.
Georgetown University School of Medicine and MedStar Georgetown University Hospital comprise our academic home, with the full resources of a world-class University at your fingertips. MedStar Washington Hospital Center, our primary clinical site, is the largest hospital in the District of Columbia by a factor of three. It is Washington DC’s busiest ED, highest volume trauma center, largest cardiac service, busiest L&D service, and is the regional burn center as well as the National Institute of Health’s designated regional stroke center.
Our multiple training sites provide for a diverse and broad-based clinical exposure to every aspect of emergency care. Our faculty and residents have a strong national (and in many cases international) presence in all facets of education, research, leadership and service.
We look forward to having the opportunity to show you first-hand all of the great things happening at our program, and to sharing with you our passion for emergency medicine.
