Emergency Medicine Resident Life

Balancing personal & professional responsibilities


EM Retreat

Each year, our residents go on a yearly retreat. You are excused from your clinical duties and we spend two days in team-building exercises, playing sports and hanging out. We also spend time in discussions about ways to improve the residency program and reviewing rotations.



Interns also get a week off annually to attend the annual SAEM (Society of Academic Emergency Medicine) Conference.  It's a great time to bond with your class and to attend workshops, lectures and poster presentations of the latest research in EM.  All expenses are paid as one of the perks of this program.
