WELCOME


Welcome to the St. John Macomb-Oakland EM Residency website!

Our faculty is strongly dedicated to the training of highly skilled, intelligent and compassionate Emergency Medicine physicians in this changing ACGME environment. We are proud to have received ACGME initial accreditation in 2016 and began moving from our four year program to a three year curriculum with the 2016-17 intern class.

St. John Macomb-Oakland is a two campus community hospital with a total of 535 beds and two very divergent populations only five miles apart. Macomb Campus is an Accredited Chest Pain Center with PTCA, an Advanced Primary Stroke Center and Accredited Trauma Center. Our residents also spend several months at St. John Hospital and Medical Center in Detroit, where they receive training in inner city medicine and additional trauma. Two of those months are dedicated to Pediatric Emergency Medicine working with Board Certified Pediatric EM physicians. By the end of our program, our residents are extremely well trained and are able to function in any type of Emergency Medicine environment.

We also travel out for dedicated Trauma, either here in Detroit at Detroit Sinai Grace (for those who do not wish to travel out of town) or out of state to either Shock Trauma at the University of Maryland Medical Center or approved locations of your choosing. PICU training is currently provided at Children’s Hospital of Michigan located in the Detroit Medical Center (DMC) and toxicology at the Michigan Regional Poison Control Center also in DMC.

Our program provides Ultrasound Certification by our fellowship trained director, quarterly SIM lab training, and a strong didactic program with monthly exams, oral board and radiology review. We have a dedicated Research Director and our residents have presented at SAEM, ACOEP and MAOPS and have taken first place awards. We have also begun to publish our research over the last two years.

Ours is a closely knit group and we encourage support and cooperation between our residents and faculty. As many of our residents are from out of state, we also function as friends and family.

I encourage you to come on in to visit and see us in action!
