"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 2023-2024 academic year, we take great pride in being part of this program, and are excited to help lead you through this upcoming year. We are dedicated to your education, well-being, and are committed to helping you succeed in all that you set out to accomplish during your training.
Training at Swedish Hospital offers a truly unique balance between academic and community medicine. You will be exposed to a wealth of pathology, cultural diversity and clinical experience that will prepare you to work in any future environment - a sentiment echoed by many of our former residents who have gone on to practice all across the country. We encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities to make the most of your training, and we are excited to support you in any way possible during your time here.
We would also like to extend a special note to our rotating and auditioning medical students: We consider you to be important members of our Emergency Department team, and hopefully our future co-residents! As such, we strive to provide you with opportunities to diagnose and manage a wide variety of illness and pathology, to develop your skills in common ED procedures, and to expand these aspects of your training alongside our residents in our simulation lab and didactic sessions. We are thrilled to have you and encourage you to reach out to us directly with your questions!
We are 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 and humility. It is our privilege to work with you in our roles as chief residents. "
