Stanford Emergency Medicine Residency

Exceptional clinical training.
Innovative professional development.
The career of your dreams.

For more than 30 years, we have had the privilege of training original thinkers, compassionate life-savers, dedicated clinicians, and brilliant researchers. Each resident has left a mark on the program, and we are proud to have many former residents as faculty.

Our curriculum has been carefully developed to foster lifelong growth and innovation while building skilled clinicians. As a result, our residents are doing great things to advance humanity, science, and health in ways that extend far beyond the walls of the emergency department.

Our residents benefit from:

  • innovative four-year curriculum
  • exceptional clinical training at 3 diverse training sites with high patient volumes
  • personalized career development in the ACCEL program
