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.

Joining a new program without a proven track record should give you pause. However, with our program ‘new’ does not mean ‘inexperienced’. I was the program director of an ultrasound fellowship and Dr. Dunne, our research director, is the program director of an EMS fellowship and was previously the APD of an EM residency. Our core faculty have maintained roles as educators and mentors despite being a non-academic ED until this year.

Thank you for considering our program for your residency training. Please reach out with any questions and we look forward to meeting you!
