Welcome, applicants! Thank you for visiting the home of the BMC Emergency Medicine Residency Program.

We have an active minority recruitment office and prioritize diversity among residents, faculty, and staff. We also offer a Subsidized Visiting Elective Program for medical students from ethnicities that are underrepresented in medicine.
