The OHSU Emergency Medicine residency program offers a dynamic mix of nationally recognized educators, a variety of clinical training sites offering diverse experiences, strong research and simulation programs, and innovative curriculum design.


The Department of Emergency Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University was established as an interdepartmental division in June 1977, becoming the third U.S. medical school to establish an independent academic emergency medicine program. Since then the Department of Emergency Medicine has experienced remarkable growth in its faculty and programs, receiving full departmental status in April 1992.

The Department of Emergency Medicine has always been deeply committed to the training of emergency medicine residents. The Emergency Medicine Residency Program, originated in 1978, is a fully accredited, three-year program that accepts 11 residents per year at the EM-I level.
