Training and Education

The OSU Emergency Medicine Residency is a 48-month program with a built-in master’s degree. Residents have a requirement to complete coursework towards a master's degree in public health, healthcare administration or global health. The entire degree can be completed over the four year program. This benefit is provided to emergency medicine residents at no charge.


Residents have the opportunity to rotate with many different specialties and to care for a diverse patient population with an incredible spectrum of pathology. Our clinical experiences produce compassionate, well-prepared residency graduates. The educational experience includes many didactic experiences to include: morbidity and mortality conferences, grand rounds and specialty specific conferences. Site support includes free dining for house staff, and a robust medical library.
