The Ohio State University Affiliated Emergency Medicine/Internal Medicine Residency is a five-year program that provides education and experience in the clinical, educational, administrative and research aspects of emergency and internal medicine and its allied fields. The clinical program is a cooperative endeavor of The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Ohio State University Hospital East, Nationwide Children’s Hospital (NCH) and OhioHealth Grant Medical Center.

In developing our Emergency Medicine Internal Medicine (EM/IM) Combined Residency Program, we have combined excellence in leadership, residency training (emergency medicine and internal medicine) and academic and patient care opportunities. Together both departments provide over 40 years of residency leadership experience and have graduated hundreds of successful graduates with a widespread impact on both specialties. Our graduates have had diverse interests ranging from academic subspecialty training, to educational and teaching activities to excellence in patient care. Many graduates have attained leadership positions in a variety of medical center and academic organizations both regionally and nationally. Our Department of Internal Medicine has several ranked U.S. News and World Report programs, while the Department of Emergency Medicine continues to be one of the most competitive emergency medicine training programs in the country.

Diverse Perspectives

A residency program that includes different perspectives only enhances learning. You will benefit from partnership with faculty and fellow residents who all took a different path to The Ohio State University. Their varied life experiences lead to a working and learning environment that enriches your own education. In addition, our department’s diversity leads to a higher quality of care that respects each patient’s unique concerns and health care challenges.

Women in Medicine

Our department is proud to celebrate and support all women in medicine. We offer a mentorship program for our female residents and host monthly events that include discussion of topics pertaining to succeeding clinically, academically and personally as a female emergency physician. Any woman who strives to be a trailblazer, advocate or leader will find the encouragement she needs at The Ohio State University.

Resident Wellness

Your learning requires focus, and you can’t adequately care for patients if you don’t have the resources to care for yourself first. Our commitment to your well-being is one we take seriously. One of our current faculty members has established the Sam Kiehl III Resident Wellness Endowment specifically to support resident wellness. Because of this investment, we are able to offer a resident retreat, healthy snacks on shift, wellness “families” to support one another, wellness topics integrated into our conferences, grants for professional development and more. The Ohio State University’s efforts to reduce burnout and improve wellness have been highlighted by The National Academy of Medicine, and our department layers additional focus on the stresses unique to emergency medicine.
