Not every Emergency Medicine Residency Conference ends with chocolate cake.
But the students and faculty who gathered in a South Campus lecture hall earlier this month had something to celebrate—as of Sept. 1, Emergency Medicine had spent its first 12 months as a full-fledged academic Department, and, according to Department Chair Dr. Deborah Diercks, had made significant progress. Dr. Diercks recapped for the faculty and residents at the celebration a number of key accomplishments over the previous year, which included new collaborations with Anesthesia and Cardiology, the establishment of a clinical trials unit, and the expansion of their residency program. With 22 residents per year, the department’s three-year residency program is now the third largest in the country.
