Graduate Medical Education
\\\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 will train outstanding
emergency physicians with a superb level of clinical competency in all
environments. Our residents will learn in a supportive and collegial atmosphere,
exposed to a very high volume of both common clinical presentations and
rare and complex cases. They will work directly with teaching attendings
who have years of experience in their respective fields. No fellows or
advanced learners will compete for procedures or dilute the clinical teaching
experience. We expect residents to work hard and learn this fascinating
and difficult specialty, but we will 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 seek
to mentor our residents to develop career-life balance that will lead
to longer, more fulfilling careers and better care for the community in
the long term.
