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 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 and ACGME core competencies.  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, who will be able to practice in diverse clinical settings.

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.  Our program is unique in that we function as a safety net hospital, focusing on efforts to reduce heathcare disparities and address the medical challenges of our diverse community.

We also believe the health of our residents is a priority.  We recognize the need for the preservation of health and wellness for 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 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, 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).
