What our residents say...

"I wanted to move closer to my parents ​after attending medical school in Iowa. I really enjoyed speaking with Dr. Bodkin at ACEP and had a great experience interviewing with URMC.

I was truly sold on the program after I completed a second look and saw how well the residents handled high acuity patients. I was also blown away by how kind all of the faculty and residents were. The program immediately felt like home!"
