Emergency Medicine Residency Rotations

In addition to training at the hospital and block rotations, Morristown Medical Center’s Emergency Medicine residents will attend weekly emergency medicine conferences and participate in a research project with the support of our faculty members.

  • PGY- I residents spend five blocks in the department of emergency medicine (EM) working 18 shifts per block. Two months are spent in the medical intensive care unit (ICU). The remaining five months are spent in EM/anesthesiology, obstetrics (OB) and ultrasound, pediatric EM, surgical intensive care unit (SICU) and the trauma center in Morristown Medical.
  • PGY- II residents spend seven blocks in the department of emergency medicine working 17 shifts per month. Two blocks are spent in the Medical Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Morristown Medical. One is spent in the Pediatric EM at Morristown Medical and one is worked at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) on the trauma service. The remaining block is spent at the New York Poison Center.
  • PGY- III residents spend eight blocks in the department of emergency medicine working 16 shifts per month. Two months are devoted to working in the pediatric EM with trauma call. The remaining two months are designated for a free elective and emergency medicine services (EMS) and audit.
