Residency in Emergency Medicine

A Message from Richard D. Shih, MD, FACEP, FAAEM


Welcome to the Florida Atlantic University Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine Emergency Medicine Residency website. We appreciate your interest and would like to share as much information as we can regarding our new FAU Emergency Medicine Residency.

We are ACGME approved to accept our first group of EM residents to start in July of 2017. We will begin interviewing applicants this October 2016 through the ERAS system.

Our planned program will focus on training excellent clinical emergency physicians in a highly academic environment. I have been lucky to have been involved in training emergency physicians as a program director over the last 20 years.  In Florida Atlantic University College of Medicine, I saw the opportunity to work with world class academic and clinical teaching emergency physicians.   Our goal is to provide EM residents the opportunity for outstanding clinical training in an excellent academic research environment. We hope to build the premiere academic emergency medicine program in Florida.

We hope you choose to be a part of our new EM family.


Richard D. Shih, MD
