Emergency Medicine Residency Program

Nationally Recognized, Locally Strong

The Department of Emergency Medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School is proud to serve as a center of excellence in Emergency Medicine in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The Department provides a comprehensive approach to the discipline of Emergency Medicine, providing leadership in clinical, academic and prehospital services.

The Program

We sponsor a fully accredited PGY-I thru PGY-III Emergency Medicine residency program with nine residents in each class. The program has maintained Continued Full Accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) since its inception in 1981. On June 30, 2010, we graduated our 200th EM attending physician. We received independent academic departmental status in 1992, becoming only the 26th academic department of Emergency Medicine in the United States at that time.
Our graduates are fully prepared to go on to fellowship training, academic or community practice Emergency Medicine.
