"Baystate has the stats to compete with any other ED program in the country, and yet somehow remains balanced and approachable."—Erica Ogle DO, EM resident

Emergency Medicine Residency

All The Experience You Need With 115,000+ ED Visits a Year

The best way to learn emergency medicine is by treating a lot of sick patients.

Because Baystate Medical Center is the region's tertiary referral center—and one of the highest volume emergency departments in the northeast—you will be exposed to diverse pathologies and advanced procedures.

Our Sane Schedule Lets You Balance Work and Life

We care that our residents have a life outside of the emergency department.

While you are here, you are going to work hard. But you will also have time to enjoy yourselves and pursue your interests. Our structured curriculum supports that. It's why clinical assignments average less than 45 hours per week. Shifts usually do not exceed 9 hours, and night shifts are scheduled in short blocks of 4-5 shifts in a row at most.

Top-Notch Training, Top-Flight Facilities

  • Our new ED and Level-1 trauma center has 10 ambulance bays and a rooftop helipad, 94 private rooms, dedicated radiology suite, and plenty of work stations.
  • We emphasize ultrasound in critical care. Our program focuses on helping you master bedside emergency medicine ultrasound and satisfy ACEP credentialing guidelines.
  • Our ACS-accredited simulation center helps you prepare for difficult cases using simulations of actual scenarios seen in our ED.
  • Train to deliver care in challenging conditions experienced in under-served parts of the world with our International Emergency Medicine Program.
