About Our Program
Welcome to the Ascension Providence Emergency Medicine Residency Program. We are excited to share with you the aspects of our community, institution and program that make this an ideal learning environment.
We are honored to serve communities rich in diversity. Providence Southfield, where high acuity trauma and medical cases are common, is part of Detroit and Oakland county EMS and near several freeways. Right off I96, our Novi campus is a fast-paced ED with frequent EMS transports from the surrounding community and rural areas.
The graduate medical education department at Providence hosts more than 200 residents and fellows. Any off-service needed to manage emergency conditions is well represented and available at all times.
Based on feedback from EM residents, we designed our didactics to be engaging for both the residents and faculty by relying on small group learning. Large group lectures are replaced with groups of 5 residents and a faculty member. Ultrasound, simulation and procedures are integrated into weekly didactics and our curriculum is tailored to each year of training.
We are proud to be Metro Detroit's newest emergency medicine residency. With our program 'new' does not mean 'inexperienced.' Among our core faculty are current EMS and previous ultrasound fellowship directors, department vice chairs, committee leaders, simulation educators and medical control authority physicians. With the growth of the residency program we've witnessed the core faculty blossom into their roles as simulation, procedure, curriculum and ultrasound directors.
Thank you for considering our program for your residency training. Please reach out with any questions and we look forward to meeting you!
