The Emergency Medicine residency program at MedStar Washington
Hospital Center, in collaboration with MedStar Georgetown
University Hospital and Georgetown University School of Medicine,
was established in July 2006 and is a three-year training program
emphasizing pediatrics, critical care, and trauma management. The
program's vision is to produce exceptional, compassionate
emergency physicians/clinicians capable of responding to urgent
needs for medical care with speed, skill, efficiency, and
confidence. Our goal is to train the next generation of leaders
in academic and community emergency medicine.
Clinical training occurs in a variety of settings in the D.C.
metropolitan area. The ability to treat a diverse patient
population served by different types of institutions (i.e.,
urban/suburban, tertiary care/primary care, academic medical
center/community hospital) guarantees an exciting, challenging,
and rewarding training experience. About two-thirds of the
resident's training is scheduled at MedStar Washington Hospital
Center. MedStar Washington Hospital Center is the largest
hospital by a factor of three in the District of Columbia. It has
the busiest adult emergency department, most active trauma
center, largest cardiac service, busiest L&D service, and is
the regional burn center and the National Institute of Health's
designated regional stroke center. Incoming residents join a team
of professionals that treats approximately 90,000 patients per
year with nearly 23,000 hospital admissions. Its Level 1 Trauma
Center is the busiest in the District of Columbia and the MedSTAR
helicopter medevac program is one of the busiest medical
transport operations in the region.
Other training sites include MedStar Georgetown University
Hospital, Children's National Medical Center, Inova Fairfax
Hospital, Shady Grove Adventist Hospital, and the R Adams Cowley
Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.
