Our Residency Program

Residents being taught cheerfully by attending

We are a hard-working and well-rounded four-year emergency medicine program in the heart of North Philadelphia. We accept 15 motivated residents per year into our program who are excited about emergency medicine. We will help you to master the field of emergency medicine and to develop your teaching, research, and administrative skills. Our goal is to prepare residents for the successful practice of Emergency Medicine in whatever environment they choose.
