Founded in 2012, our three-year Emergency Medicine Residency graduates eight physicians per year. We are a dynamic, learner-centered residency that constantly pushes our educational programs forward to meet our residents’ needs. We focus on teaching — maintaining a one-to-one attending-to-resident teaching ratio in the emergency department — and our multi-hospital training model helps residents prepare to work in any setting upon graduation. Faculty and residents in our program engage in a range of scholarly activity to enhance their practice and contribute to the field. Learn more in a welcome letter from Program Director Todd Berger.
Serving the most vulnerable in our community on the front lines of care, we place an emphasis on leadership training with special focuses on public advocacy, emergency department administration, EMS and pediatric emergency medicine. Our city — recently voted the No. 1 city to live in by U.S. News and World Report — is known for its live music festivals and venues, strong schools, tech-based economy, access to the outdoors and active lifestyle.
All residents are supported by Dell Med’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. Residents receive memberships to American College of Emergency Physicians, Emergency Medicine Residents’ Association, Texas College of Emergency Physicians, Texas Medical Association and Travis County Medical Society, and they also have access to Med Challenger, UpToDate and Pepid, as we receive a copy of Rosen’s Emergency Medicine.
The Emergency Medicine Residency program is affiliated with the Department of Surgery and Perioperative Care.
