We are an accredited Stroke and STEMI Center. Our residents can see a variety of both common and complex pathology. Senior residents have the option of participating in an aeromedicine curriculum starting in their second year of residency, serving as the primary flight physicians for the Life Flight/Mobile Life Critical Care Transportation Network.
