Residents are exposed to an experienced board-certified faculty with expertise in multiple areas of the discipline. These include EM Ultrasound, critical care, tactical medicine, and disaster management. Each core faculty member is academically active and truly devoted to resident education.
Committed to the Best Training in Emergency Medicine
Regardless of their individual academic area of expertise, each faculty member is committed to providing our residents with the very best training in emergency medicine.
A number of the faculty members are trained both in emergency medicine and critical care, providing residents with a unique educational experience in the Emergency Department and when working in one of our critical care units. In addition to working with intensivists in the ED as well as in our critical care units, the 6 months of critical care training our residents receive helps them to become particularly skilled at caring for the very sickest of patients.
St. Luke’s began teaching ED ultrasound in 1994, before the first textbook of EM Ultrasound was published and has remained a leader in bedside ultrasound training. Every EM attending in our network is fully credentialed in bedside ultrasound and our residents develop expertise in all the ED applications of ultrasound. The Emergency Medicine Residency Program has published two major texts and many research articles and chapters on the topic.
