Welcome to the residency program in Emergency Medicine
at the University at Buffalo!
at the University at Buffalo!
We are very pleased that you are interested in learning more about our three-year university residency in Emergency Medicine at the University at Buffalo.
The primary goal of the residency is to prepare physicians for the clinical practice of emergency medicine. In addition, residents will also acquire the necessary skills to pursue an academic career in emergency medicine. Upon completion of our 3-year program, graduates are equipped to treat emergent patients in any setting, whether urban, suburban, rural, or in the field.
To accomplish these goals, the program provides both experiential and didactic training. Patient care experience is provided in the emergency department under the direct supervision of faculty committed to quality resident education. Four core emergency departments are utilized to insure that residents are exposed to the full spectrum of illnesses and a broad range of patients. Residents are accorded graded, progressive responsibility as they advance.
An evaluation process is in place to verify resident progress in the development of the clinical judgment and technical skills needed to practice emergency medicine. A program of regular meetings with the program director and assistant program directors are scheduled to review resident progress and to help residents adapt to the stress of residency training and of increasing clinical responsibility.
