The University of Vermont Medical Center is Vermont’s flagship academic medical center. Our mission is to improve the health of the people in the communities we serve by integrating patient care, education, and research in a caring environment. Serving a population of more than a million throughout Vermont and northern New York, The UVM Medical Center is committed to being a national model for the delivery of high quality academic health care for a rural region.
The emergency department at UVM Medical Center has an annual census of approximately 65,000 visits and serves as the state’s only designated Level I Trauma Center, Primary Stroke Center, provides 24-hour cardiac catheterization services, and is associated with the Vermont Children’s Hospital. The specialized residency in emergency medicine is a 12-month program focusing on expanding pharmacotherapy knowledge and application to medical emergencies. Experience is gained by daily direct patient care in the Emergency Department as well as daily rounding while on rotation in the medical intensive care unit, the surgical intensive care unit, or with the infectious diseases team. The residency will be individualized to meet specific goals of each resident.
