About the Residency Program.
For the majority of ED clinical shifts, our residents work directly with the ED attending physician. This allows our trainees to learn from the most experienced providers and educators, beginning the first day of internship and continuing throughout training. Our junior residents benefit from one-on-one mentorship, and our upper level residents benefit from full autonomy with guidance when needed for fine-tuning of advanced skills. Rotating medical students are frequently paired with the attending-resident team, which provides abundant opportunities for direct involvement in clinical teaching.
Meet Our Residents.
Residents pursue a variety of special interests in our program from joining tactical emergency medical support teams to experiences in international health. Many residents pursue independent projects or and design their own elective experience focused on one or more of the special interests described below.
The cultural, economic, and geographic diversity of the DC region provides our program with a vast patient population and a variety of clinical settings. It is truly an exciting, challenging, and well-rounded training experience.
