Welcome to one of the country’s oldest and most established Emergency Medicine Residency programs in the country.

The University of Illinois Chicago is the city’s largest and most diverse university. 

Our Residents rotate between four primary and two ancillary hospitals that serve as sites for additional electives. Each hospital site carries a specific mission and serves a distinct patient population. This hybrid gives our residents the optimal circumstances to gain a wide range of clinical and social experiences integral to training emergency medicine physicians.
