Welcome Future EM Residents!
Here's some information to get you started in the residency application process. The Society for Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM) contains valuable resources for EM applicants, and is an excellent starting point on the road to residency. Check out their website before you do anything else!
Need some answers to important questions? Looking for hard data to back it up? We've got you covered with these articles from the Journal of Academic Emergency Medicine:
- Selection Criteria for Emergency Medicine Residency Applications (2000)
- US Allopathic Emergency Medicine Residency Programs: A Descriptive Review (2003)
- Careers of Graduates of Combined Emergency Medicine/Internal Medicine Programs (2002)
Here's an EM Residency Guide from our own 4th year medical students. Learn about common misconceptions, get some practical advice, and find out what to look for in a residency from the people that matched to one!
