Emergency Medicine

Memorial University’s Discipline of Family Medicine is pleased to offer Enhanced Skills training in Emergency Medicine (EM). This residency program will both challenge and prepare you for an exciting and fulfilling career in EM. Our goal is to produce Emergency Physicians who are competent to practice the full spectrum of family medicine and emergency medicine in any setting, from rural and remote sites to tertiary teaching hospitals.

Our program is unique in that we are the only Emergency Medicine residency training program at Memorial University; our learners are the most senior residents rotating through our emergency department and do not compete with FRCPC EM residents or other fellows for opportunities and procedures. We boast a large group of engaged faculty with varied special interests within the practice of emergency medicine including advanced PoCUS, simulation, pre-hospital medicine, EDI-AR, and QI. Our simulation and procedural skills curriculum will allow our residents to feel comfortable in dealing with the highest acuity patients immediately upon graduation. Residents and staff share regular social events including a year-end resident retreat to promote learner well-being.

Successful completion of this twelve-month residency program will lead to eligibility to sit the Examination of Added Competence in Emergency Medicine. Candidates who successfully complete both the residency program and the examination will be awarded a Certificate of Added Competency (CAC) by the College of Family Physicians of Canada.
