Leaders in Emergency Medicine Education

Emergency Medicine is the newest academic Department at Washington University in St. Louis, and we are excited to announce the search for an Assistant Program Director to join our cohesive and curious group of energetic educators who share a passion for innovation and creativity in graduate medical education. Our main clinical site, Barnes-Jewish Hospital, is the largest provider of charity care in the area, a very busy Level 1 trauma center, and the largest tertiary referral center in the region with approximately 80,000 annual ED visits. You can also work alongside residents just across the street at St. Louis Children’s Hospital (55,000 annual visits) as a well as our community site Missouri Baptist Medical Center (35,000 annual visits).

WashU EM is a four-year program supporting 14 residents per class for a total of 56 residents. While residents spend much of their training at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, they also rotate at St. Louis Children’s Hospital and two different community sites at Missouri Baptist Medical Center and Barnes-Jewish St. Peter’s Hospital. Thanks to a well-developed alumni network across the country, our residents have innumerable opportunities upon graduation with approximately two thirds pursuing academic careers and the other third working in the community.

Our ideal candidate would be a graduate of an education fellowship or individuals with education experience. In all individuals applying, we would hope to see a demonstrable commitment to further our specialty through educating the next generation of EM physicians and creating excellent academicians.

Our culture at WashU EM values diversity, thus we are seeking a candidate who not only values the same but demonstrates diversity, equity, and inclusion in their professional careers. Those who bring diversity to our Department are strongly encouraged to apply.

We offer applicants a competitive salary, generous benefits, professional development opportunities, and much more. The candidate offered this job would also be awarded an academic rank commensurate with their previous professional experiences, academic productivity, and awards.

We hope that you sense the tremendous growth and opportunity for Emergency Medicine in our medical school and healthcare institution, and we are excited to interview those who are motivated and inspired to make this one the best places to train Emergency Medicine residents in the country.
