The credentials of the Virginia Commonwealth University Department of Emergency Medicine faculty are remarkable. Three of the faculty completed five-year combined programs in emergency medicine and internal medicine. Two others completed residency training in another specialty before completing emergency medicine residency programs. Our chair is triple-boarded in internal medicine, cardiology and emergency medicine. Members of our faculty have completed fellowship training in pediatric emergency medicine, medical toxicology, critical care, emergency medical services, emergency cardiology and research.


The VCU Department of Emergency Medicine accepts 10 new categorical residents each year, and two EM/IM residents. Our residents dedicate themselves to learning, gaining new skills and serving the community, while also making time for family commitments and extracurricular pursuits.


The VCU Department of Emergency Medicine accepts fellows in Resuscitation, Toxicology, and Ultrasound and soon to include EMS. Our fellows also serve as clinical instructors in emergency medicine and perform clinical shifts as attending physicians.


Graduates from the Department of Emergency Medicine are practicing the highest quality emergency medicine in hospitals all over the world. Lifelong students of medicine, they also serve as instructors and researchers, making their mark on the next generation of emergency medicine physicians as they make significant contributions to science.
