our mission

The Brown Emergency Medicine Residency trains emergency physicians to the highest quality clinical standards as residents learn, grow, and lead. Our four year academic program will prepare residents to become clinical, academic, and service leaders in the field of emergency medicine.

We strive to provide evidence-based, socially equitable, and compassionate care to the diverse population of Southeastern New England. We value teamwork and an interdisciplinary approach to meet and exceed the needs of our patient population.

We are dedicated to intellectual rigor and collaboration. Through connections with our world class learning institutions, we work to innovatively solve the problems facing modern medicine and our communities.

We prioritize wellness as a central tenet of the whole physician and strive to develop a culture that not only supports individuals through the challenges of residency, but also instills habits that promote a healthy work-life balance throughout one’s career.

Finally, we stand united in our belief that addressing the social determinants of health is integral to provide the highest quality care, and we actively promote equity in healthcare delivery.

From the Program Director

Welcome to Brown!


I am excited you are interested in learning more about Emergency Medicine training at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University, located in the historic city of Providence. There is a tremendous amount of information you can learn about our 4 year training Program here on our Residency website (developed by our fabulous residents!) and there is more information about our faculty on our Department website.  As a brief introduction, I will highlight our Mission and the unique learning experience you will be a part of when you choose to train with us.
