Welcome to the IU School of Medicine Emergency Medicine Residency! We are excited that you are here to learn more about our program. Founded in 1976, our program has been training the best emergency physicians in the country for almost 50 years! We have graduates practicing emergency medicine across the globe, from Alaska to South Carolina, Washington DC to Nepal, and everywhere in between. Our graduates work in every imaginable setting, from community EDs to large academic hospitals and include a large number of educators, researchers and administrators. They frequently hold leadership positions including hospital and state level executives. The success of our graduates starts with the outstanding clinical training that you receive at our three main sites, all level 1 trauma centers within 2.5 miles of each other with nearly 250,000 combined annual visits! Your faculty in the department are committed to your learning on every patient, providing evidence based education as well as teaching the art of medicine. Most importantly, IU has an unrivaled reputation for teaching surge management, the most important skill for an emergency physician.
As the only emergency medicine program in the state of Indiana, we pride ourselves on training our residents to be successful for a 30 year career in whatever field of emergency medicine they wish to enter and to become a leader in that field. Our three year curriculum provides a number of opportunities to tailor your program to your interests. You have three electives, ample time outside of the department to pursue your specific interests and a number of extra curricular tracks that include a pathway to developing expertise in a niche area. Our program relies heavily on resident involvement to help run the program. We have a system of resident led committees that are integral to our success. This opportunity to become involved in the program from day one helps our residents develop a growth mindset and skill set that continues to pay dividends after graduation.
Our program is one that is inclusive and welcomes diversity of all kinds. We are dedicated to recruiting an amazing group of talented emergency medicine physicians with a diversity of ideas, experiences and backgrounds. This diversity improves us all and helps us care for our diverse populations of patients. We are committed to creating a learning environment where our residents can learn, grow and share their ideas. This allows everyone to develop their potential regardless of race, gender, religious background or sexual orientation. Lastly, everyone in the Department of Emergency Medicine—the faculty, staff and residents—are all invested in collective success. When we are asked who does well here, people who are as concerned or more concerned about the person next to them as they are about themselves are at the top of the list. This focus helps create the culture of support that is essential to help you reach your potential!
