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 resident's program may vary according to circumstances.

All off-service 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.  We also offer a community hospital rotation at one of our affiliates  in the second and third year.
