Not a residency grad myself, But I would add Arrowhead in CA,  Albert Einstein in Philly, as well as the program in Syracuse, NY.  to that list.

 There is not enough time for proper off service time and ED time in 12 months. I think more focused specialties could be 12 months, but I was just hitting my stride at 12. EM is just too broad and requires a lot of time with other services.

edit to add: the reason why you really need off service rotations in EM is because you will rarely deliver a baby in the ED, but on a OB rotation you’ll do it twenty times. You may throw one line in a month in the ED, but may get 7 in a week in the MICU. You’ll see major trauma every few shift in the ED, but on trauma surgery you’ll have the muscle memory to do a trauma exam in your sleep. Plus, you’ll learn what your other specialist colleagues do and don’t do on the floor/ICU. This helps a lot when you have a boarding patient. I’ve had to keep critically ill patients in my ED for several hours due to weather or lack of beds at the next facility. Plus, people will really like you when you send everyone wrapped up in a bow.

strong work. PA school teaches the basics of EM. Certainly less than paramedic school for acute management of emergent patients. A residency is an excellent idea for anyone wishing to start a career or transition into a career in EM.

Well, I know which one you're NOT at 🙂 Mind sharing in DM which one? Always looking to learn more about the others.
