Conferences and Teaching

Emergency Medicine Residency Program

Learning and Teaching Opportunities

Residents attend five hours of educational conference weekly on Thursdays. This time is dedicated to teaching core content, discussing cutting edge trends, understanding current research, and fostering a multidisciplinary team approach to patient care. A core lecture series, small groups, simulation, and subspecialty conferences and grand rounds are central to the curriculum.

In addition to nationally recognized ChristianaCare faculty lecturers, we attract renowned emergency medicine leaders. Senior residents spend one month as a designated teaching resident in the Emergency Department, providing guidance and bedside teaching to rotating medical students and junior residents.

The combination of our size and national ranking gives residents a unique, close access to a friendly, enthusiastic faculty in a setting where mentorship and teamwork are paramount, and residents have a nearly one-to-one ratio with mentors.
