Emergency Medicine Residency Program
University of Florida Department Of Emergency Medicine Residency is located at the UF Health Shands Medical Center, the University’s primary medical school campus, in Gainesville, Florida. It has experienced remarkable expansion and growth in its pursuit of excellence in resident training. We have evolved into a fully established emergency medicine residency over the course of the last decade, and are accredited until 2020. We are committed to training residents to become superior well-rounded clinicians that have the skills to become educators, researchers, and leaders in Emergency Medicine.
The objective of the student rotations within the Emergency Department is to provide students with exposure to clinical cases and proper training to help them positively enhance patient care. Students will learn how to apply methods and procedures within emergency medicine sub-specialties to deliver exceptional emergency care.
The Emergency Department is currently accepting applications to a post-graduate fellowship, and is developing the curricula and infrastructure for more. We offer fellowship opportunities in the areas of Emergency Medical Services, Critical Care Medicine, and Emergency Ultrasound.
Our clerkship at the University of Florida in Gainesville is a mandatory fourth year clerkship. Students will see an undifferentiated patient population, meaning you are to see patients as acuity dictates and you will never be barred from seeing any patients. You are actively involved in trauma alerts, septic workups, pediatric resuscitations, stroke alerts, chest pain work ups, etc. The curriculum for our required clerkship was created to provide students with knowledge and experiences in areas of medical education no other rotation was able to provide. These include emergency airway management, trauma management, acute chest and abdominal pain work ups, toxicology and environmental medicine.
