Curriculum

Through clinical, didactic, and patient simulation technology, Upstate EM residents become credentialed to perform all of the Residency Review Committee (RRC) required skills.

Resident education occurs in Syracuse, New York at Upstate Medical University, St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center, Crouse Hospital, the VA Hospital and Community General Hospital. The unique populations at these clinical sites allow for very different patient interactions. Indigent as well as insured; urban as well as rural; and primary care as well as tertiary care patients are treated in these hospitals' emergency departments.
