Residents receive unparalleled training in trauma, point-of-care ultrasound, pediatric emergency medicine, EMS, and public health. We are the busiest emergency department and trauma center in New England with more than 130,000 visits/year. We have a dedicated pediatric ED as well as a close relationship with Boston Children’s Hospital through the Boston Combined Residency Program in Pediatrics (BCRP). We are the affiliate hospital for Boston EMS and serve as the receiving facility for the majority of traumatic injuries in the City of Boston. Finally, we offer fellowship training in ultrasound and pediatric emergency medicine.

One of the greatest strengths of the program is our talented group of residents, drawn from medical schools all over the country and with diverse outside interests and accomplishments spanning engineering, public health, international work, sports, and the arts.

As the first EM residency in the city of Boston and as an independent academic department at BMC and Boston University School of Medicine, our program has a long track record of developing leaders in all aspects of emergency medicine.
