Rotation Sites | Schedule | Conferences
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.
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.
Five hours of protected conference time each week.
Faculty dedicate the first hour of conference to our BrownCoat Core Curriculum, an intern-specific topic of study. Seniors will engage in asynchronous assignments or higher-level course concepts during this hour. You can expect high-yield 20-30 minute lectures, small groups, simulations, and procedure workshops during the balance conference time. We have found that optimal learning happens in the first 20 minutes, and as such, besides grand rounds, we do not have hour-long lectures.
Innovative experiential instruction and learning.
OPEN IN SEPT 2019, the Simulation and Integration Learning (SAIL) Institute at the College of Medicine opened the doors to its 28,000-square-foot advanced simulation environment. The space embodies technological tools like high-fidelity adult, pediatric, and infant mannequins, simulated clinical skills labs for procedure skills training, and a hospital environment with a dedicated operating room, among other medical environment spaces that can be configured to replicate outpatient clinic rooms and inpatient units, all designed to enhance healthcare delivery’s safety, effectiveness, and quality.
SAIL is where we hold Conference every Thursday from 7a-12p. In addition to SAIL there are SIM centers at two of our other rotation sites, Lutheran General Hospital and Illinois Masonic Medical Center.
