Facilities

Our residents train at our four-hospital consortium; University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System (UI Health), Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, OSF Little Company of Mary Medical Center, and Advocate Lutheran General Hospital. Each hospital site houses an array of specialty and sub-specialties and serves a distinct patient population.

Schedule

We are a 3-year EM training program. Each year of training consists of thirteen 4-week rotations. You will rotate through one of our four hospital sites during each block. We know education is individualized, so we refuse to have pre-scheduled rotation tracks. Our residents can request how they want their year to look as long as they complete all required rotations.

Conferences

Five hours of protected conference time each week.

The first hour of conference is dedicated to our BrownCoat Core Curriculum, an intern-specific curriculum. During this hour, the seniors will either have asynchronous learning or higher-level topics covered. During the rest of our conference time, you can expect high yield 20-30 minute lectures, small groups, simulations, and procedure workshops. We are EM physicians and know the best learning happens in the first 20 minutes; other than grand rounds, we do not have hour-long lectures.
