Emergency Medicine Residency
Welcome to our website and thank you for your interest in the Hackensack University Medical Center EM Residency Program! Our program is an ACGME PGY 1-2-3 program with 36 residents and 40 faculty located in northern New Jersey, just 15 minutes from New York City. We are the largest EM residency program in the state of New Jersey.
Our mission is to train physicians with the passion to become the best Emergency Physicians. We accomplish this by recruiting highly-motivated candidates who appreciate the patient-centered and team-approach to medical training. This training occurs at one of the nation’s most highly recognized institutions. We provide you with the tools, resources and opportunities to flourish in both academic and community emergency medicine.
A successful residency program at its core places the residents first. We encourage residents to be the fabric of our evaluation, review and promotion process and rely upon constant feedback from them to create ongoing, positive changes. We believe that residents who shape their program in this way remain active learners throughout the educational experience.
Our residency is a place where the faculty really care about both their patients and their residents. Here you will see a wide spectrum of disease with a volume of over 111,000 patients annually. Our weekly educational conferences are interactive, exciting, and dynamic. We provide you with iPads to search topics in real-time during conferences so you can participate in our evidence-based medicine discussions. We are looking forward to meeting you and discovering your potential to become a great Emergency Physician!
