The Boston Medical Center Emergency Medicine Residency is a 4-year program based in an urban, academic, Level 1 trauma center in the heart of Boston.

Boston Medical Center (BMC) functions as the safety-net-hospital for the Boston metropolitan area, providing compassionate, state-of-the-art care to a diverse and under-served patient population. BMC has a proud history of commitment to our community, and is a national leader in programs advocating for violence-prevention, substance abuse treatment, HIV testing and prevention, and services for our homeless community members. BMC is also a tertiary care referral center for patients from all over the region and country, offering renowned specialists for a variety of illnesses including pulmonary hypertension, cardiac disease, stroke, trauma, renal disease, and amyloidosis.

Residents receive unparalleled training in trauma, point-of-care ultrasound, pediatric emergency medicine, EMS, and public health. We are the busiest emergency department and trauma center in New England with more than 130,000 visits/year. We have a dedicated pediatric ED as well as a close relationship with Boston Children's Hospital through the Boston Combined Residency Program in Pediatrics (BCRP). We are home to the Boston EMS Headquarters and serve as the receiving facility for the majority of traumatic injuries in Boston. Finally, we offer fellowship training in ultrasound, EMS, and pediatric emergency medicine.

One of the greatest strengths of our program is our talented group of residents, drawn from medical schools all over the country and with diverse outside interests and accomplishments spanning engineering, public health, international work, sports, and the arts.

As the first EM residency in the city of Boston, and as an independent academic department at BMC and Boston University School of Medicine, our program has a long track record of developing leaders in all aspects of emergency medicine.
