The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) Department of Emergency Medicine is launching a national search for a Program Director of our Emergency Medicine residency program. The fifth largest of the 19 clinical departments at MCW School of Medicine, the Department of Emergency Medicine provides care to patients at a number of Emergency Departments across a wide geography within the Froedtert and Medical College of Wisconsin (F&MCW) Health System. In addition to patient care, the Department has excelled in educational innovation, clinical research, and community engagement.
With a 42-year history, MCW Emergency Medicine residency program has positioned itself as a national leader in the training of emergency physicians. Following a 1-2-3-format, the Emergency Medicine residency program at MCW trains 12 residents per class—for a total of 36 residents. We draw a diverse group of top-notch residents from around the country—to include matriculants from schools such as: Georgetown University; Boston University; University of Texas – Southwestern; Indiana University; Loyola University Chicago (Stritch); among others. Our residents gain their clinical experience at several sites including:
- F&MCW Froedtert Hospital (72,723 annual visits; Level 1 Adult Trauma Center);
- Zablocki Veterans Affairs Medical Center (24,192 annual visits);
- F&MCW Froedtert Menomonee Falls Hospital (34,858 annual visits); and
- Children’s Wisconsin Hospital (71,788 annual visits; Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center).
Speaking to the richness and high acuity of our training environment, F&MCW Froedtert Hospital Emergency Department ranks #11 in the country on the Association of Academic Administrators (AAAEM) “ED Patient Population Complexity Index and Rank” for fiscal year (FY) 2019. Working with three Associate/Assistant Program Directors, an education Program Manager, and an Education Program Coordinator, our training program graduates skillful young emergency physicians who go on to successful careers in academics and in the community.
A successful candidate will have at least a three-year record of demonstrated accomplishment and excellence in graduate and/or undergraduate medical education leadership and innovation. The successful candidate will also have an academic record commensurate with the rank of Assistant Professor or above. Previous residency program leadership, as well as an interest in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion is highly desirable.
MCW is committed to the principle of equal opportunity in education and employment and is dedicated to diversity and inclusion of all people and groups. We particularly encourage those who are under-represented in medicine to apply.
