  • A Message from the Program Director

    The McLaren Oakland Emergency Medicine Residency is a well-established ACGME-accredited program located in downtown Pontiac, Michigan. Our program is an urban, community-based, university-affiliated residency, specializing in training residents in community-based emergency medicine. The clinical and educational experience the residents receive is augmented by the vast educational resources of the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine State-Wide Campus System (MSUCOM/SCS).


    The McLaren Oakland Emergency Department is an ACS certified Level II Trauma Center, as well as a verified Chest Pain Center and Stroke Center. Our residents are exposed to a high patient volume with high acuity. The expectation of simultaneously managing patients of all acuity levels provides the resident with a superb community-based emergency medicine education.


    Over the 3-year program, residents rotate through adult critical care, trauma, pediatric critical care, pediatric emergency medicine, toxicology, EMS, orthopedic surgery, ob-gyn, internal medicine, radiology and cardiology. Additional opportunities to choose from multiple in-house elective rotations or electives at approved off-site locations round out the program.


    Training in and serving an inner-city, under-served, under-resourced community requires residents to be resourceful, tactful, diplomatic, willing to help, open-minded and compassionate while providing cutting-edge medical care in a busy, stressful, unpredictable and ever-changing environment. Our graduates have the skills, knowledge, experience and common-sense to practice anywhere in the country.


    Our residency provides a psychologically safe environment to learn and enjoys diversity in race, sex, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation and religion among the residents and attending physicians. The only common characteristic we all share is a desire to provide exceptional medical care to an underserved community. If you share that same characteristic, you are welcome and wanted in this program!
