Residency Home

Welcome to the homepage for the Kaiser Permanente San Diego Emergency Medicine Residency Program.  We pride ourselves on being the first Kaiser-based Emergency Medicine residency program in the country!

The Kaiser Permanente San Diego Emergency Medicine Residency Program is a comprehensive 1,2,3 format training program planned for accreditation in the Fall of 2013. The program will accept 6 residents per year and is planned to matriculate its first class in July, 2014.

The program is designed to provide all of the essential tools residents will need to be superb clinicians, educators, and leaders in their field. Residents will learn to care for any patient in any practice environment. Supplementing the core clinical rotations, will be longitudinal ultrasound and tox curricula; interactive and dynamic conferences and workshops; a state of the art simulation lab; and 45 full-time faculty, many with fellowship training, who are dedicated to teaching at the bedside and in the classroom.

In addition to the core content and key learnings of emergency medicine, residents will acquire the tools needed to practice in EM today. There will be a strong focus on leadership training, operations management, physician wellness, innovation and technology, patient safety and service, health care delivery systems and risk management. Further, residents will be provided with skills to enrich their careers through scholarly activity, research, and lifelong learning of evidence-based medicine.

Our vision is to be the premier training program in emergency medicine, inspiring both the personal and professional lives of our residents, while making a positive impact on patients, the community, and health care at-large. We will accomplish this by recruiting highly-motivated candidates who also appreciate Kaiser’s patient-centered approach to medical training.

At Kaiser, you will become a superbly trained and well-rounded clinician prepared for a fulfilling career in emergency medicine with the skills to THRIVE in any practice environment.
