Emergency Medicine Residency

Who We Are

The Temple University Department of Emergency Medicine is comprised of more than 40 faculty members and 42 residents with diverse backgrounds, interests, experiences, and expertise.  Together, we provide cutting-edge, compassionate care for more than 180,000 patients each year in our emergency departments.  Our Department of EM is well-respected not only for the ED care we provide, but also for the outstanding culture and camaraderie that exists within our faculty and resident groups, the mentoring and academic career development that we provide to our residents, and our engagement with and support for our underserved community.  Our faculty and residents hold major leadership positions in national organizations, our hospitals, and the medical school, which provides outstanding clinical, teaching, leadership, and scholarship opportunities for our residents. 

 

We believe in rolling up our sleeves to teach and learn emergency medicine. Temple's high-volume, high-acuity settings expose our residents to the breadth and depth of the specialty and prepare them to excel in any practice setting or fellowship training.  Our residents get exposure to the spectrum of EM subspecialties and practice settings so that they can make informed choices about their own career goals. We provide the resources and mentoring to support them in achieving those goals.
