Our transition to a 4-year program is not simply an extra year of training, but much more; we have worked hard to ensure that it is not just “more of the third year.” We are not just taking our current number of residents and spread them over 4 years; we will be adding a complete 4th year class of 15, for a total of 60 residents. Benefits include more time for professional development and early exposure to different niches in EM through our longitudinal ACCEL program. We provide more enhanced clinical training, making you the best clinician you can be and increasing your marketability. You also receive more opportunities to supervise in a pre-attending role and manage an Emergency Department.
Our 4-year program gives you time to do more, at a pace that promotes wellness and professional growth. We aspire to continue to redefine ourselves in order to provide our residents the best tools possible for a successful and long career in EM.
Living in the Bay Area is achievable on a resident's salary. The residents get a competitive salary to help deflect the cost of Bay Area life. We also provide a housing stipend to help with moving costs.
