At JPS I found a combination of resident camaraderie, faculty leadership and patient pathology I had never seen before. The JPS EM experience is second to none. JPS EM residents log significant numbers of procedures while providing quality care to critically ill patients. And the culture of the JPS EM Program not only places great importance on quality patient care, but we also care about each other and that adds real value to our training as well as making for an exciting challenge every shift.
