St. Joseph is a Level III Trauma Center with an annual patient volume of approximately 35,000. Residents are exposed to a variety of patients including pediatric, cardiac, OB/GYN and trauma with a high acuity of illness. The program incorporates the use of bedside ultrasound and Glyde Scope in our clinical practice and offer ample opportunity for procedures. Our residents enjoy increasing clinical autonomy as they progress through the program. The program didactics include weekly lecture participation and monthly RPAC lectures with other CORE programs. The use of SimMan® and attendance at the Ohio ACEP and ACOEP board review courses add to the residents' educational experience.
