\\\Riverside GME Programs
The RCH / UCR Emergency Medicine Residency Program will use a highly supportive
and collegial training environment in a high volume, high acuity, high
efficiency setting to educate generations of emergency physicians, superbly
equipping them to heal those in need and advance the science of emergency medicine.
Heal * Educate * Advance
- To provide compassionate, efficient, and state-of-the-art medical and surgical
care to all who enter our Emergency Department.
- To educate and guide emergency medicine residents toward becoming leaders
in providing cutting edge, highly efficient, team-centered patient care
in a supportive collegial atmosphere.
- To advance the science and practice of emergency medicine, particularly
as it applies to the real-world community hospital setting, so that we
may better care for those who need us.
The RCH / UCR Emergency Medicine Residency Program trains outstanding emergency
physicians with a superb level of clinical competency in all environments.
Our residents learn in a supportive and collegial atmosphere, exposed
to a very high volume of both common clinical presentations and rare and
complex cases. They work directly with teaching attendings who have years
of experience in their respective fields. We expect residents to work
hard and learn this fascinating and difficult specialty, but we also emphasize
and help them develop the life skills to become a well-rounded professional
in the larger community. As studies show a growing problem with physicians
becoming disgruntled, burned out, and engulfed in “compassion fatigue,”
we mentor our residents to develop career-life balance that leads to longer,
more fulfilling careers and better care for the community in the long term.
