Postgraduate training in Emergency Medicine began in 1970 with the establishment of the nation's first residency at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. The residency started with one resident in 1970. As of July 2012, we have had 14 residency positions
per year, and we currently have 56 residents. The residency has full accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. Many leaders throughout the world in both academic and clinical Emergency Medicine received their training
at the University of Cincinnati.
In July 1982 the Department of Emergency Medicine expanded its residency program from a three-year format to a four-year format. The residents and the training program have enjoyed substantial benefits in many ways as a result of this expansion. We believe that four years of Emergency Medicine training allows the resident to graduate with more clinical and professional maturity. While three years of clinical training is certainly adequate to become an Emergency Physician, a four-year model allows residents to develop more effectively into clinical and academic leaders. As mentioned, our residents are often ready to transition into leadership roles immediately after training or enter their top choice of fellowship. However, as there is very little ED clinical time during fellowships, a year of fellowship training is not equivalent to the fourth year of our program. The fourth year is structured as a junior faculty role in which the R4 oversees both EM R1s, off-service residents and medical students caring for patients in a 26-bed unit. This model allows the R4 to develop crucial skills both in ED management and supervision and education, while at the same time significantly increasing his or her own number of patient encounters. These are skills that serve our graduates well whether they seek out academic or community EM careers after residency training. Another benefit of the fourth year is the increased elective time available to allow for the development of a particular area of interest, the completion of research projects, or the strengthening of a perceived area of weakness. Not only do these additional experiences make our residents better clinicians, they help to prepare them for a career in academic medicine, should they choose to pursue such a pathway.
Our educational mission is not only to train Emergency Physicians with the clinical skills to succeed in any environment, but also to train Emergency Physicians with the skills to become leaders in Emergency Medicine. Our goal is to provide residents with the skills that they need to get the “dream job” on graduation – and if you talk to our graduates across the country, you will find that we are successful in achieving this goal.
