"So what should I look for in an emergency medicine residency?"
Ascension Macomb-Oakland Hospital is home to two different campuses, with a combined volume of 110,000 yearly. The Macomb campus which is the main campus is located in the heart of Warren, the third largest city in Michigan. We are an unopposed, resident-run ER in the Warren area and proud to be one of the busiest ERs in the Detroit area. Starting from day one you are expected to be seeing and managing patients on your own and you are continued to push to see more patients daily as this is our hands on philosophy that will make you a competent ER physician. Our graduates after the end of residency are clinical leaders in their respective field.
Metro Detroit is home to many diverse cultural backgrounds of different socioeconomic status unique to anywhere else in the country. Macomb county is home to a large elderly population with multiple nursing facilities in the vicinity. Ascension Macomb has a higher admission rate in the metro Detroit area. By the end of their first year our interns are confident in their procedural skills and have completed most of their ACGME procedural skills requirement. Interns their first day will be observing and assisting senior-led codes and traumas.
We are fully ACGME accredited. Our program was built on the fundamentals of providing the education essential to making a complete emergency medicine physician. We prioritize exposing our residents to the ER as much as possible, along with out rotations at state of the art institutions for ever lasting skill. For example, our residents have the opportunity of performing trauma rotations at either the renown R. Adams Crowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore or DMC Sinai Grace, one of the highest rates of penetrating trauma in the country. We have a dedicated pediatric anesthesia month, and offer elective months with freedom for residents to choose. Our program is also a part of the statewide campus system, a consortium of sixteen emergency medicine programs with dedicated speakers and didactics monthly.
As you apply to the 2022-2023 cycle we sincerely wish you the best of luck and encourage you to come see us in action. We look forward to meeting you and we hope you match into a family as close knit as ours.
