Department of Emergency Medicine Residency Program

Since 1989, the UC Irvine School of Medicine's Emergency Medicine Residency Program has been training leaders in emergency medicine. 

UC Irvine Medical Center is a Level I trauma center, comprehensive stroke center, burn center, and cardiac receiving center. As the comprehensive tertiary care center for Orange County’s 3 million people, our medical center provides residents with a wide range of clinical experiences.

In addition to UC Irvine Medical Center, our residents rotate at CHOC Children’s Hospital of Orange County, Miller Children’s Hospital, Long Beach Memorial Medical Center, Mission Hospital and the VA Long Beach Healthcare System.

During each shift, residents see a high volume of new, undifferentiated patients. We are proud of our one-on-one apprenticeship model. Our residents present every patient to an emergency medicine faculty member, never to a fellow resident. As such, our residents get the highest level of teaching for each patient case.

Our weekly conference appeals to today’s learners with high-yield, interactive didactics given by experts in all aspects of emergency medicine.
