The Department of Emergency Medicine offers residency programs at the Detroit Receiving Hospital, Sinai Grace Hospital and St. John Hospital and Medical Center.
Our program trains emergency medicine physicians who render the finest patient care with compassion while contributing to the specialty of emergency medicine through leadership in both academic and community medicine.
Our residents gain unparalleled exposure by training at an urban level 1 trauma center with over 90,000 annual ED visits as well as at one of the busiest pediatric hospitals in the nation- Children's Hospital of Michigan.
The Detroit Medical Center/Wayne State University Sinai-Grace Emergency Medicine Residency was established in 1981 as a PGY 1-3 program. Growing from two residents annually in 1981, we are now fully accredited to train 12 Emergency Medicine Residents per year. We completed our most recent RRC site visit in 2011, and have received a five year accreditation cycle.
The St. John emergency department has 73 private patient care rooms and a massive resuscitation area is a state-of-the-art facility and a great place to practice and train. The most important asset to our program, however, are the top-notch people involved – the faculty, residents, nurses, ancillary and office staff as well as the interesting patients they serve. The variety and acuity of disease processes encountered by our resident and staff are vast and as a result, they develop a strong clinical acumen.
