Training Tomorrow's Emergency Medicine Leaders

Welcome to the Brigham and Women's Hospital / Massachusetts General Hospital Harvard Affiliated Emergency Medicine Residency (HAEMR) web site.

Five teaching hospitals sponsor our program. Each institution is nationally renowned for post-graduate education and all are academic leaders in medicine. These hospitals include:

Each of these institutions is fully committed in support of our four-year residency program in clinical, academic, and administrative emergency medicine. At BWH/MGH HAEMR, junior residents are exposed to the entire spectrum of emergencies and develop advanced proficiency in wide-ranging clinical care, airway management, and other essential procedural skills. We have a clinical training program that provides residents with clear and progressive responsibility during their training, supported by an educational curriculum that includes a wide variety of teaching methods including patient and procedural simulations, evidence-based medicine workshops, mock oral boards training, and crisis resource management training. Senior residents are given added responsibility through supervising and teaching medical and trauma resuscitations in addition to learning to direct the management of two busy Level 1 emergency departments with a combined annual patient volume of over 150,000. The four-year format allows residents to develop superlative clinical skills while also exploring areas of academic interest including clinical research, administration, quality & safety, EMS/disaster preparedness, education, international EM, ultrasound, wilderness medicine, and national organizational leadership.
