The Department of Emergency Medicine is committed to delivering exceptional education to faculty, residents, medical students, and physician extenders.   

 The flagship of our educational program is our residency in emergency medicine.  This highly competitive, four-year program is designed to provide state-of-the-art clinical and academic training to the future leaders of emergency medicine.  Our weekly academic conference series features an innovative and comprehensive curriculum as well as nationally recognized guest speakers.   The clinical training environment offers unparalleled experiences in critical care resuscitation, pediatrics, and trauma. We provide structured experiences in Toxicology, Ultrasound, and Emergency Radiology along with the flexibility to pursue numerous electives.

We also offer advanced post-residency training through our many fellowship programs.  Most of these programs offer the opportunity to complete a Master of Public Health through Brown’s highly regarded School of Public Health

The department also has a strong presence within Brown’s Alpert Medical School.  We offer popular medical student electives in adult and pediatric emergency medicine.  Over 60 EM physicians participate as physician mentors or small group leaders in Brown’s Doctoring course for first- and second-year medical students.  A number of other faculty members lead medical student electives and scholarly concentration programs.

We also sponsor the Emergency Medicine Physician Extender Development Program (EMPED).  This unique 12-month intensive training program for mid-level providers offers advanced training in emergency care.  It is one of the first programs of its kind in the country and represents our commitment to inter-professional education.
