Wait times represent the average estimated length of time from registration to being assigned a "first provider" (a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Times displayed for Atlantic Health Systems are:

  • Reported as an average of wait times for the previous 2 hours of patients that have presented to the emergency department and have been seen by a provider
  • Refreshed at least every 15 minutes

Many circumstances can affect wait times - for example, patients arriving by ambulance or with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Patients with severe conditions will be seen before those with less-serious problems or ailments. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.

Emergency Medicine Residency

A Message from the Director

Thank you for your interest in the Morristown Medical Center Emergency Medicine Residency Program.

Morristown Medical Center’s Emergency Medicine (EM) Residency Program educates faculty and residents in new core competencies. Our EM residency has been in existence since 1978 and offers first class training in a regional hospital with excellent academic and clinical mentorship. We focus on modern assessment tools, including changes to the evaluation forms that reflect a competency-based approach to patient care quality and other core goals and objectives.

Many of our alumni are now directors of emergency departments, academic emergency physicians and practicing emergency physicians. Some have also graduated and completed fellowships in specialty areas such as: emergency medicine services, emergency ultrasound, hyperbaric medicine, toxicology, critical care, disaster planning and pediatric emergency medicine.

We look forward to your application >

Emergency Medicine Residency Program Director

About the Department of Emergency Medicine
Our department of emergency medicine is staffed by 30 full-time faculty members, all of whom are board-certified or board-eligible in emergency medicine. Our 60-bed, 28,560 square feet facility features patient care areas, trauma facilities, fast-track unit, offices and a conference area. We see approximately 85,000 patients a year, including 23,000 pediatric patients, and admit approximately 12,000 patients. Ancillary services permit the emergency medicine resident to spend his or her time providing direct patient care with minimal nursing or secretarial duties. The emergency medicine attending delegates patient care to residents in accordance with their level of training, though every patient is seen by the attending. Senior emergency medicine residents are responsible for managing major trauma three times a week.
