NUEM Chiefs

Thank you for your interest in NUEM!

Not only are we thrilled to welcome you to the exciting and ever-evolving field of Emergency Medicine, but also welcome you to get a glimpse of the NUEM family.

NUEM residents care for a diverse patient population with a wide spectrum of acuity. With nine critical care rotations (and no floor months!) our residents grow comfortable taking care of the sickest of the sick patients. At our primary training site, Northwestern Memorial Hospital (NMH), we benefit from being a Level I trauma center as well of one of the nation’s premier academic medical institutions. Here, we provide care in a rich clinical environment where we see the full spectrum of emergency medicine across the entire socioeconomic spectrum - from ankle sprains in tourists to international diseases, to critically ill transplant patients across the entire socioeconomic spectrum.

Our residents learn from expert clinicians, who serve as passionate educators, administrators, and researchers. Faculty also serve as editors of major journals, direct curriculum at the top-ranked Feinberg School of Medicine, and work as physicians for national sports teams.

For those interested in augmenting their clinical training, there are opportunities throughout the department, the hospital system, and the school of medicine. Departmental research areas include post-cardiac arrest care, social emergency medicine, hospital resource utilization, opioid prescribing, back pain, and geriatric emergency medicine.

Residents actively participate in faculty research, whereas some opt to conduct their own studies. Others get involved in longitudinal hospital quality improvement programs, sit on hospital committees, present at national conferences, work in ED operations, develop new simulation curricula, volunteer with local community outreach programs, teach in the medical school, or lead one of our innovative academic colleges.

If these existing opportunities do not meet your needs, our faculty will do whatever they can to connect you with an extensive alumni and professional network in order to work with you to achieve whatever goals you might have.

As comprehensive as our clinical training is at Northwestern, what we value most are the relationships we build in this program. At Northwestern, you will have the chance to meet, train with, and become lifelong friends with truly incredible individuals who will undoubtedly shape the future of emergency medicine academically, administratively, and through outstanding patient care. Our graduated training model allows us to not only hone our clinical teaching skills on every shift, but it also allows us to work closely with our co-residents to develop a unique bond that will last far beyond residency. Outside of work, you would be hard-pressed to find a day of the year where there is not a group of residents enjoying Chicago and each others’ company in some form or fashion.

We’re thrilled that you’re considering our NUEM family. Please explore our website, and social media, and feel free to contact us at any time with questions at Good luck on the interview trail!
