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, ACGME-accredited training program
emphasizing pediatrics, critical care and trauma management.
program's vision is to produce exceptional and compassionate
emergency physicians who are 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 (urban, suburban, tertiary care, primary care, academic medical
centers, community hospital) guarantees an exciting, challenging
and rewarding training experience.
The majority of our residents' training takes place at MedStar Washington Hospital
Center. MedSTAR (Medical Shock Trauma Acute Resuscitation) at Washington
Hospital Center is a Level I Trauma Center and a regional resource
for the transport and treatment of patients with a wide spectrum of
critical illnesses and injuries. The Burn Center at MedStar Washington is the only adult
burn treatment center in the Washington metropolitan area and features a multidisciplinary team specially trained to
provide comprehensive care for burn victims.
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.
