Harvard Affiliated Emergency Medicine Residency (HAEMR) at BIDMC
Welcome to the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Harvard Affiliated Emergency Medicine Residency. This three-year program (PGY-1 to PGY-3) is affiliated with Harvard Medical School and is based at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), a 57,000 visit per year Level I trauma center. Residents rotate at Children's Hospital Boston, Brockton Hospital, Cambridge Hospital, Tufts Medical Center, St. Vincent Hospital, St. Luke's Hospital, Mount Auburn Hospital and Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Needham.
The mission of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is to practice high quality clinical care, contribute leading research, provide outstanding teaching efforts, and to contribute to the surrounding community.
The educational goals of the residency are to promote excellence in the clinical, academic, and administrative aspects of Emergency Medicine. Residents are taught how to be outstanding clinicians. This is accomplished through clinical experience in several busy emergency departments as well as through a high quality didactic program. During the clinical experience, the residents are closely supervised and given graded responsibility for patient care and ultimately for patient flow in the ED. Additionally, residents are taught how to supervise medical students and other residents and how to teach the practice of Emergency Medicine. Residents teach medical students and prehospital personnel and contribute to the didactic program. Senior residents take on the responsibility of supervising junior residents in the clinical arena. The focus of the residency program is on teaching the leadership skills necessary to direct a busy emergency department in any setting.
The other major educational goal of the residency is to develop the research and academic skills required for a career in academic Emergency Medicine. Participation in research is promoted through a system of mentorship, journal club participation, and a didactic program that teaches research design and statistical methods. Residents are required to complete a research or academic project that results in a paper suitable for publication. Funding is available within the Department of Emergency Medicine at Harvard Medical School and the Department of Emergency Medicine at BIDMC. Promoting the administrative aspects of Emergency Medicine is another goal of the BIDMC Harvard Affiliated Emergency Medicine Residency. Through an EMS/Administrative rotation and a longitudinal experience in prehospital administration, residents gain experience in running a local prehospital system.
This program takes advantage of the unique academic opportunities at Harvard Medical School, the Harvard teaching hospitals, and the Harvard School of Public Health. These opportunities include the outstanding experience available through Boston Children's Hospital and the Departments of Medicine, Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Anesthesia at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
