- 6 Emergency Medicine
- 2 Internal Medicine
- 1 Pediatrics
- 1 Cardiology
- 1 Obstetrics/Gynecology
- 1 General Surgery
- 1 Anesthesiology
The second year will focus on expanding skills which will lead to efficiency in managing several patients including major trauma and medical resuscitations. In addition, residents will refine advanced life saving procedures.

- 1 Radiology/Ultrasound ED (2 weeks each)
Year 3 is focused on improving the residents ability to manage patient flow in the Emergency Department and develop academic competency through supervising/teaching junior residents and students. The residents will also be introduced to EMS which will enable them to develop vital out-of-hospital communication skills. Rotations are as follows including one out-rotation at Cook County Hospital:
7 Emergency Medicine
1 Trauma (Butterworth Spectrum)
1 Plastic/Hand Surgery (2 weeks each)
1 Clinical Investigation
1 Toxicology (Cook County Hospital)
In the final year residents will refine the ability to problem-solve, perfect patient disposition, and provide efficient medical care. Each resident will be given time to examine their own personal academic interests through 2 months of electives. In addition, an administrative month will enable each resident to experience different supervisory roles required within an Emergency Department.
- 9 Emergency Medicine
- 1 Critical Care/ICU
- 2 Electives
- 1 Administration
The most important component of an Emergency Medicine residency program is to provide a strong didactic curriculum that augments structured hands-on experiences. Our conference schedule (5 hours per week) provides vital educational exposure to the core curriculum of Emergency Medicine. All rotating residents are excused from clinical duties during these EM academic events. Each resident will be given direct supervision and mentoring, in order to achieve academic success.
As an affiliate of and training site for the Statewide Campus System of Michigan State University COM, additional mandatory participation in the statewide EM consortium education conferences occur monthly. The MSU Statewide Campus System provides specialized hands-on lab sessions yearly that include:
- Basic and Advanced Ultrasound
- Anatomy/Cadaver Procedure Labs
- Advanced Slit Lamp Testing
- HAZMAT Training
- Advanced Airway Courses
- Swine Labs
Please click here to view our Resident Manual.
Through the guidance of the MSU Statewide Campus System and our faculty, residents will be given direction in completing a required research project that meets the AOA standard.
Finally, with the addition and participation of Lakeland HealthCare's Internal Medicine and Family Practice Residency programs, daily morning reports, noon lectures and monthly Morbidity-Mortality conferences will provide an increased amount of resident education.
All of these academic experiences, along with oral and written board preparation examinations, will prime residents for the certification examinations of the American Board of Osteopathic Emergency Medicine.
