Emergency Medicine Residency Program

Our Emergency Medicine Residency Program

The primary goal when you complete this Program is to be not only competent, but an excellent Emergency Medicine physician ready for independent practice. We have all of the other bells and whistles to get you to any other Emergency Medicine path you would like to travel, but the base is the same for all of our resident physicians. And we get to do all of this in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina. We look forward to receiving your application and answering any questions you may have.

Visiting Student Information

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-crisis we will not be accepting applications for Visiting Student (VSAS) rotations during the 2020-2021 academic year. This was an extremely hard decision to make, both for the Institution and the Program. We certainly hope you will consider our Program during the ERAS Season, and look forward to reviewing your application!

The ERAS application deadline is November 15, 2020. Applications will not be accepted after that date. We will begin reviewing ERAS applications and inviting EM Residency Applicants after October 21, 2020.
