Henry Ford Hospital Emergency Medicine Residency Program

The Henry Ford Hospital Department of Emergency Medicine offers an ACGME approved 3-year (PGY 1-3) residency program in Emergency Medicine that leads to certification by the American Board of Emergency Medicine. We also offer a 5-year Combined Emergency Medicine and Internal Medicine (EM/IM) program, and a 6-year Combined Emergency Medicine, Internal Medicine, and Critical Care (EM/IM/CC) program. 


Our residents are a diverse group of creative and highly motivated individuals who are committed to becoming excellent clinicians and advancing the field of Emergency Medicine. They learn cutting-edge patient care techniques, with a focus on providing safe and equitable care to our patient population and local community. They thrive in a stimulating and challenging environment with excellent faculty education, support and mentorship. They are integral components of the Henry Ford EM family and pride themselves on being #BuiltFordEMTough.


The residency has produced over 400 practicing emergency physicians who have gone on to successful careers as clinicians, educators, researchers, chairmen and administrators. Henry Ford Emergency Medicine alumni practice all over the United States and internationally. They have a long track record of obtaining highly competitive fellowships, such as critical care medicine, ultrasound, pediatrics, toxicology, ED administration, sports medicine, research, palliative care, medical education, EMS, and international EM. Our mission is to develop future leaders in education, research, administration and patient advocacy by educating residents to be outstanding clinicians and providing them opportunities to advance emergency care.


The longitudinal curriculum is based on a process of progressive responsibility that takes residents on a journey from medical student topracticing emergency physician. Learn more about our training schedule. 


The Henry Ford Hospital Department of Emergency Medicine values a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment. We believe this commitment to diversity both strengthens our community and ensures delivery of the highest quality patient care. We encourage inclusion of all, including those who are traditionally underrepresented in medicine such as racial and ethnic minorities, LGBT-identified or gender nonconforming individuals, individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds or with special needs, and others. We do not permit discrimination of any kind.
