Message from the Program Director

Welcome to Nazareth Hospital’s Emergency Medicine Residency Website! I am so excited to begin this journey as a new emergency residency program in Philadelphia. Thank you for taking time to learn more about our program. We are an ACGME accredited program and will start our first class July 2020!

Our mission is to train clinically outstanding physicians while simultaneously fostering their communication and leadership skills to develop well rounded physicians who will thrive in any environment.

Being a new program we are looking for residents who are excited to help us shape and develop the program while getting excellent training. We are responsive to feedback and want to include our residents in decisions that affect their education. We expect our residents to work hard while maintaining work life balance and keeping burn out at bay. We have an extensive network of support from the leadership, attendings, residents and ancillary staff and are able to give individualized attention to all of our residents.

A successful Nazareth EM resident will have a sense of adventure, be hardworking, compassionate and strive to be the best version of themselves both at Nazareth and beyond.

We are looking for EM2s as well so if you are interested please email us!
