The fifth largest of the 19 clinical departments at MCW School of Medicine, the Department of Emergency Medicine provides care to patients at a number of Emergency Departments (ED) across a wide geography within the Froedtert and Medical College of Wisconsin (F&MCW) Health System. In addition to patient care, the Department has excelled educational innovation, clinical research, and community engagement.
With a 42-year history, MCW Emergency Medicine residency program has positioned itself as a national leader in the training of emergency physicians in training. Following a 1-2-3-format, the Emergency Medicine residency program at MCW trains 12 residents per class per academic year—for a total of 36 residents. We draw a diverse group of top-notch residents from around the country—to include matriculants from schools such as: Georgetown University; Boston University; University of Texas – Southwestern; Medical College of Wisconsin; Loyola University Chicago (Stritch); among others.
Our residents gain their clinical experience at a number of sites—staffed by the MCW Emergency Medicine faculty to include:
- F&MCW Froedtert Hospital (72,723 annual visits; Level 1 Adult Trauma Center);
- Zablocki Veterans Affairs Medical Center (24,192 annual visits);
- F&MCW Froedtert Menomonee Falls Hospital (34,858 annual visits); and
- Children’s Wisconsin Hospital (71,788 annual visits; Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center).
Speaking to the richness and high-acuity of our training environment, F&MCW Froedtert Hospital Emergency Department ranks #11 in the country on the Association of Academic Administrators (AAAEM) “ED Patient Population Complexity Index and Rank” for fiscal year (FY) 2019.
Working with three Associate/Assistant Program Directors, an education Program Manager, and an education Program Coordinator, our training program graduates skillful young emergency physicians who go on to successful careers in academics and in the community.
A successful candidate will be board-certified in Emergency Medicine. He or she will have at least a three-year record of demonstrated accomplishment and excellence in graduate medical education leadership and innovation. The successful candidate will also have an academic record commensurate with the rank of Associate Professor (or above) at the School of Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
In terms of reporting, the Program Director will report to the Vice-Chair for Education and Training as well as the System Chairman of Emergency Medicine.
