Residency Program

The Department of Emergency Medicine Residency Program at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston is dedicated to improving the health and welfare of urgent and emergent patients of all ages.


Educational Curriculum

We are dedicated to our residents’ education, learning and individual progress as they progress towards becoming successful practicing emergency physicians. Our didactics follow the core curriculum from the Model of Emergency Medicine. We have conference with didactic lectures, demonstrations, journal clubs, and skills labs on Thursdays from 7:00AM–12:00PM. This time is also used for quality assurance conference, ultrasound curriculum, EKG courses, , and oral board preparation experience. Residents are relieved of all clinical duties in order to attend conference on Thursday mornings except those on ICU rotations during which direct patient care takes precedence. All residents are expected to maintain a minimum of >70% conference attendance throughout the year.
