Medical Student Education in Emergency Medicine

Students Classroom

It is an exciting time in Emergency Medicine and we welcome students to our learning environments. Froedtert Hospital provides a rich experience with a diverse patient population that challenges and strengthens diagnostic skills. Our faculty come from diverse academic backgrounds with one thing in common: we are dedicated to excellence in patient care and training the next generation of Emergency Medicine physicians across the continuum of medical education. Our diverse faculty includes experts in resuscitation, disaster medicine, injury epidemiology, emergency ultrasound, airway management, traumatic brain injury, global health, wellness and education.

As the specialty of Emergency Medicine becomes increasingly competitive, our goal is to ensure that students are equipped with the tools they need to succeed in the Match. We prioritize personal relationships with faculty advisors and have a dedicated education team to help you along the road to residency,
