We are located on the University of Pennsylvania campus in West Philadelphia and care for a tremendously diverse patient population. The combination of the urban, inner city population as well as patients attracted to the tertiary care specialties available at our internationally recognized institution, make our emergency department a fantastic melting pot, and a stimulating clinical experience. There is no public hospital in Philadelphia giving us the opportunity to provide equal care to everyone who walks in the door under the same roof.
Our four-year curriculum allows residents a greater breadth and depth of clinical experience with unparalleled exposure to pediatrics, ultrasound, and critical care. Ample elective time and schedule flexibility allows the independent and self-motivated to take advantage of all the clinical and intellectual resources both within our department and hospital as well as across our campus in order to customize their training. Complement this with our subspecialized faculty and you have created a tremendous educational experience. The faculty members are true leaders in our field. They are active clinicians and researchers and many have been successful academically as presidents and meeting directors for SAEM, editorial boards, reviewers for major journals, national lecturers, and authors of numerous books, chapters and journal publications each year.
