This four-year residency program includes participation in airlift patient retrievals, paramedic training and supervision, and training in emergency department administration, disaster planning and emergency medical services (EMS). The department of occupational medicine falls under the aegis of the Emergency/Trauma Department; therefore, residents gain exposure to and experience in this area as well.
Clinical rotations within McLaren Oakland include the departments of critical care, trauma, neurology, orthopedics, ophthalmology, and appropriate subspecialties. Elective courses are available throughout the United States. All graduates of the residency program are certified instructors in ACLS and ATLS.
Practical clinical experience is augmented by weekly teaching conferences and a monthly trauma conference.
First year is OGME-1r (option 1). Students will "match" directly into the residency and the 1st postdoctoral year will be considered the first year of residency training.
