We realize that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many EM bound students’ rotations were either severely disrupted or canceled.  For the upcoming application cycle, our program will require only ONE letter of recommendation, but SLOE is preferred. We will consider all SLOE’s, including the one written by the student’s home institution.

In alignment with the recommendations set forth by the The Coalition for Physician Accountability,

  • We will conduct all interviews virtually this year for all applicants
  • We will only require one letter of recommendation (SLOE preferred, home institution SLOE will be accepted as well)
  • Students will not be penalized for not having away EM rotations

At this time, we are suspending all observerships until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

ARMC Emergency Department is very excited about your interest in rotating with us. For those interested in our EM residency, we do offer rolling interviews, so apply early.

During your 4 weeks with us, you’ll be working in one of the busiest emergency departments and trauma centers in California. With an average daily census of
around 300 patients, ARMC treats over 100,000 people each year. You will be exposed to a wide variety of medical problems. With a high census, diverse pathology, and a hands-on approach to teaching, the emergency medicine rotation at ARMC will be a great learning experience. Remember, you’ll get out of this rotation what you put into it, we encourage you to see patients, ask questions, be involved, and most of all, have fun!
