About the Program

The Capital Health Emergency Medicine Residency Program is dedicated to supporting our residents as they develop into highly skilled emergency medicine physicians who provide compassionate care to the diverse patient populations we serve. We are eagerly looking forward to welcoming our first group of residents in July 2021, with interviews starting this fall.

Our program is unique in that residents will rotate through two different and complementary Emergency Departments. Each location sees a wide variety of pathology as well as a significant number of acute cases. Residents will be challenged and supported. Our faculty is dedicated to providing both the best patient care possible as well as high-caliber teaching. Our academic program incorporates various learning modalities including a simulation lab.
