ARMC Mission

EM Residency Mission Statement

We strive to provide quality education, professional guidance and unparalleled experiences that will successfully prepare our residents for their future as compassionate, community Emergency Medicine physicians.

Program Vision & Overall Goals

Arrowhead Regional Medical Center Emergency Medicine Residency Program is a San Bernardino County facility dedicated to training Emergency Medicine Physicians.  We aim to do this by providing excellent clinical and didactic instruction which covers Emergency Medicine core content, ACGME core competencies, procedure labs and much more.  As a program and committed medical educators, we strive to mold and produce empathetic physicians who will one day be the future leaders of Emergency Medicine.

The patient is the most important part of our educational focus.  Therefore, we are committed to providing a safe environment for our patients, delivering compassionate, patient-centered care, and promoting the general health of the community.

We also believe a healthy resident is imperative.  We recognize the need for the health and wellness of our residents and their family life.  The ARMC Emergency Medicine Residency Program ensures the duty hour work week requirement is implemented and followed as required by the ACGME accreditation policies to guarantee personal time away from the work place in order to avoid resident fatigue, stress, sleep deprivation and assurance for patient safety.

The Arrowhead Regional Medical Center Emergency Medicine Residency is a four-year program.  The Emergency Medicine Residency Program builds upon the knowledge and clinical skills gained during their PGY 1 and focuses on expanding that knowledge and refining the skills required for quality emergency care.  During emergency medicine rotations, Emergency Medicine Residents are closely supervised by Board-Certified or Board Eligible Emergency Physicians which are certified by the ABEM and/or the AOBEM.

The Emergency Medicine Residency Training Program’s curriculum, policies, and procedures can and will be modified during the course of residency training. In doing so, we will continually strengthen the program and adhere to the mandated standards of Arrowhead Regional Medical Center (ARMC), the County of San Bernardino (CSB), and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).  At the completion of the Emergency Medicine Residency Training Program, all residents will be qualified and eligible for certification by the American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM) and/or American Board of Osteopathic Emergency Medicine (ABOEM.)
