Welcome from the Program Director
It is my pleasure to welcome you to our Department of Emergency Medicine's Residency Program at St. Elizabeth Boardman Hospital. Having been part of this program for the past five years, I have had the opportunity to see this program grow. As a new program director, I am excited about the innovation, energy and devotion of the residency leadership. The residency program continues to grow and mature providing our resident graduates with outstanding career opportunities.
The program is fully accredited by the Residency Review Committee of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. Residents completing the program are eligible for board certification in emergency medicine. We currently offer nine categorical emergency medicine positions.
We understand that choosing the right emergency medicine training program is one of the most important decisions you will make. Our program offers a family atmosphere and supportive learning environment. Our residents enjoy graded clinical responsibility and the opportunity to develop their teaching ability and skill by participating in the education of the medical students who call our facility home. All of this allows our residents to hone not only the basic skills of medical knowledge and patient care, but to develop the art of emergency department flow and interpersonal skills with other medical personnel.

Our faculty and staff are outstanding mentors and educators. All of our faculty leaders are actively practicing, hands-on clinicians who work alongside the residents in our emergency departments. Bedside clinical teaching coupled with clinical and educational expertise make our faculty some of the best. Several of our faculty are administrative leaders within our hospital system which further bolsters their educational strengths.
