Emergency Medicine Residency

With 110,000+ Patient Visits a Year, You Get All the Experience You Need.

The best way to learn emergency medicine is by treating a lot of sick patients.


Because Baystate Medical Center is the region's tertiary referral center—and one of the highest volume emergency departments in the northeast—you will be exposed to diverse pathologies and advanced procedures.

Our Sane Schedule Lets You Balance Work and Life 

We care that our residents have a life outside of the emergency department.


While you are here, you are going to work hard. But you will also have time to enjoy yourselves and pursue your interests. That's why clinical assignments average less than 45 hours per week. Shifts usually do not exceed 9 hours, and night shifts are scheduled in short blocks of 4-5 shifts in a row at most.

Learn to Be a Smart, Efficient, and Caring Emergency Physician

Our graduates gain an understanding of both community and academic emergency medicine while obtaining the necessary skills to succeed in a challenging career:

  • caring for a diverse patient population
  • performing emergency ultrasound
  • teaching medical students and participating in research
  • serving at International Medicine sites
  • employing Simulation Lab technology
  • instructing PALS, ACLS, ATLS, and ADLS courses
