Internal Medicine-Emergency Medicine Residency
The combined internal medicine-emergency medicine residency training program features equal emphasis on emergency, inpatient and ambulatory patient care so that a graduating resident will be highly skilled and adept at practicing in any combination of settings. The program’s unique strength is its affiliation with Veterans Affairs, the largest health care network in the country.
Training began in July 2011, and the program currently accepts two residents per year. Clinical training takes place at both VCU Medical Center and Hunter Holmes McGuire Veterans Affairs Medical Center . Both sites benefit from excellent full-time teaching faculty and offer unique patient-care settings. Early in the first year of training, residents pick a specific track, such as pediatric emergency medicine, toxicology or hospital medicine and are assigned a mentor who will help pick subsequent electives and shape the resident’s career.
