Welcome to the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital Emergency Medicine Residency Program

In the training of current and future physicians, we strive for excellence in teaching the practice of emergency medicine. Our goal is to develop skilled and compassionate emergency physicians through our residency program. The program is academically based and is designed to provide a well-balanced educational training experience that fulfills the special requirements established by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

In September 2008, we received the maximum five year accreditation from the ACGME (that has since been extended to 2018). This achievement is evidence of our commitment to top quality resident education. We combine superior patient care, strong teaching and quality research in an environment that will nurture intellectual curiosity, support personal growth and prepare residents for a successful professional career.

Experienced leadership, a quarter-century plus of residency training experience, a cutting-edge formal curriculum, a wide variety of clinical environments, a state-of-the-art medical education building housing high technology simulators, coupled with a dedication from the department, the hospital, and the medical school, all contribute to a top-notch training experience.
