Program Director Welcome

Welcome to St. Joseph’s University Medical Center’s Emergency Medicine Residency Program!
Founded in 1867 by the Sisters of Charity, St. Joseph’s is committed to serving and healing the ill with compassion. Our three-year ACGME-accredited EM program emphasizes evidenced-based practice, innovative education, service, and physician wellness.
Our primary clinical site in Paterson, NJ is the third busiest Emergency Department in the country. It serves an urban population with a diverse cultural background and a wide range of clinical pathology. St. Joseph’s Wayne, our sister hospital, provides residents a uniquely rich community experience. Our faculty is committed to the growth and success of each of our emergency medicine residents.
An exceptionally diverse patient population, faculty, and resident compliment form the foundation of St. Joseph’s EM, creating an extraordinary training environment. We take pride in training our residents to be prepared for any career path they choose after residency. Thank you for considering training with us, and we look forward to you joining our St. Joe’s family!
