Chairman's Message

Affiliated with Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, our program provides faculty and residents with a diverse clinical experience. Our quaternary academic medical center and our multiple community affiliates in the robust University Hospitals system allow for the full range of clinical medicine. Both our pediatric and community Emergency Medicine experiences are integrated and longitudinal; we collaborate closely with UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital whose ED is co-located with the adult site as well as the UH Ahuja Medical Center. In addition, we pride ourselves on ensuring a wide range of opportunities for our trainees in any number of emergency specialty fields, including:

  • Global health: Our unique partnership with International Medical Corps enables trainees a wealth of international opportunities to better learn the practice of EM when resources are limited.
  • Emergency Medical Services: This includes our new EMS and Disaster Preparedness Training Institute that provides structured opportunities for prehospital medical direction and education.
  • Ultrasound: Our faculty are recognized internationally for their expertise in this emerging discipline - opportunities exist to teach and conduct research all over the world.
  • Clinical Operations and Administration: Residents can engage in performance improvement initiatives, to include collaboration with the UH Innovation team as well as Emergency Medicine leaders nationally.
  • Critical Care: Residents participate in cutting-edge education, research, and practice in acute resuscitation by our cross-trained EM-critical care faculty both upstairs and downstairs.
  • Toxicology: Our toxicology faculty are renowned for their passion for caring for the acutely poisoned patient while advocating for support of patients struggling with addiction presenting to the ED.

Our residency training curriculum places a premium on care of the critically ill. A structured graduated responsibility clinical model, complemented by several months of ICU experience annually, ensures our residents graduate with a confident understanding of our sickest patients. Our clinical, didactic and asynchronous educational model cultivates a foundation of evidence-based medicine, procedural competency, and scholarly growth.
