With a fourth year, our residents have time to complete comprehensive, broad-based training in a variety of diverse clinical training environments. A fourth year allows us to provide a deep rich experience in areas like critical care and pediatric emergency medicine.
By the time you reach your fourth year, you are clinically independent yet still have a support system in a structured setting to back you up. You gain invaluable experience staffing interns and working on the flow of the department. The longitudinal career development opportunities a fourth year affords will set you up for the most competitive fellowships and job openings.
