Emergency Medicine Residency: Curriculum
Academic Excellence, Cutting-Edge Technology and Hands-On Experience
About Our Curriculum
Since Dr. Ernie Ruiz founded our program more than 40 years ago, HCMC has offered physicians one of the most comprehensive Emergency Medicine experiences available. Our three-year curriculum delivers outstanding critical care experience in a high volume, fast paced Level I Trauma Center. Our approach gives you hands-on learning opportunities early, working side-by-side with experienced professionals in a collaborative environment.
As an academic healthcare system, HCMC places strong institutional value on education and research. During rotations, Emergency Medicine residents experience ample "protected time" for didactics and conferences, to create a well rounded learning environment.
We update our curriculum regularly to incorporate resident input, the latest research, and the newest techniques and equipment. Your study with HCMC will include training on advanced technology such as emergency ultrasounds and hyperbaric medicine, as well as rotations in neurosurgery, emergency orthopedics, MICU, and training in toxicology with the Minnesota Poison Control Center, run by HCMC.
