Curriculum

A strength of our Emergency Medicine program is our annual assessment of residents' experiences. This helps us to modify, expand, and improve the curriculum.

The rotation schedule below will acquaint you with a typical resident's PGY1 through PGY3 experiences. The individual residents program may vary according to circumstances.

All rotations are at Strong Memorial Hospital (SMH), with the exception of one first-year OB/GYN rotation. This is held at Highland Hospital, a community affiliate located within a mile of SMH.
