Longitudinal Education Tracks

The UVA Emergency Medicine Residency Program is unique in offering longitudinal tracks for interested upper-level residents (PGY-2 and PGY-3). These tracks are designed to allow opportunities for learning geared towards a particular interest or subspecialty in emergency medicine, with ample opportunities to mold tracks to a resident’s unique interests. Participation in the tracks is not required, but dedicated time to pursue track activities is provided for participating residents. The following longitudinal tracks are available:

  • Medical Education Track: geared for those with an interest in educating students and residents or for those seeking experience with a career in academic EM
  • EMS Track: for residents with interest in prehospital care and medical direction
