A MEssage From Our ChiEfs

For those of you who are new to our program, it is truly our pleasure to welcome you. For those who are established members of our Swedish Hospital Emergency Medicine Residency family, thank you for all that you do to make our program amazing!

As the chief residents for the 2022-2023 academic year, we take great pride in being part of this program and are excited to help lead you through these formative years. We are dedicated to your education and wellness, and committed to helping you succeed in all that you set out to accomplish during your training.

Training at Swedish Hospital offers a perfect balance between academic and community medicine and a wealth of experiences that will prepare you to work in any environment. There is consensus in this sentiment from our former residents who have gone on to practice in a wide variety of settings. We encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities to make the most of your training. While doing this, we will be available to whole-heartedly support and guide you.

Lastly (but certainly not least!), a special note to our rotating and auditioning students. We consider you to be important and integral members of our Emergency Department team. As such, we strive to provide you with opportunities to diagnose and manage a wide variety of clinical illnesses and develop skills in common ED procedures. We are thrilled to have you and encourage you to reach out to us directly with your questions!

We feel fortunate to be part of a unified team of residents and faculty that has risen to the challenge of serving our diverse communities with compassion, humility and intellect. It is our absolute privilege to work with you in our roles as chief residents.
