Third Year

The third year resident begins to assume the role of supervisor and teacher in the ED while continuing their education in critical care, trauma, and general emergency medicine. Emphasis is placed on directing junior level residents in the emergency department and medical intensive care unit. Third year residents lead trauma resuscitations while at Yale and Bridgeport Hospitals and primarily manages all ED trauma intubations. The third-year resident gains extensive experience in critical care during this academic year. Exposure to pediatric emergency medicine is integrated throughout the year.  Core experience in emergency psychiatry is obtained in the acute crisis intervention unit.  This unit specifically serves patients with acute, emergent psychiatric needs.  So that each resident may pursue research or other areas of interest, eight weeks of elective study time is allotted. Eight of these weeks can be spent outside of Yale.
