Training Future Leaders in Emergency Medicine
Founded in 2012, the three-year Emergency Medicine Residency at Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin 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 excellent attending-to-resident teaching ratios 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.
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 and social medicine, emergency department administration, EMS and pediatric emergency medicine. Our city — often voted one of the top places to live 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 the American College of Emergency Physicians, the Emergency Medicine Residents’ Association, the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine, the Texas College of Emergency Physicians, the Texas Medical Association and the Travis County Medical Society. They also have access to a number of online and written emergency medicine resources, including Rosh Review, Up-to-Date and Rosen’s Emergency Medicine.
