UC Irvine's Emergency Medicine Residency Program is a fully accredited, university-based program that offers aspiring physicians a unique and exciting training opportunity at UC Irvine Medical Center, a Level I trauma center. We receive more than 48,000 patient visits annually, ensuring that residents are exposed to a variety of traumatic injuries; we are also a stroke center, cardiac center and burn center. Our program incorporates every aspect of emergency treatment, from pre-hospital care through patient assessment, stabilization and therapeutic intervention.
We are proud to offer a special educational model: a one-on-one apprenticeship, with every emergency department patient presented to an emergency medicine department faculty member, never to another resident. As such, our residents receive the highest level of personal supervision and learning from each case.
