Abstract

There are currently 5 combined residencies in emergency medicine (EM), namely EM/pediatrics, EM/internal medicine, EM/internal medicine/critical care, EM/family medicine and EM/anesthesiology. These combined programs vary from 5-6 years in length. Like categorical programs, the decision to enter a 5- or 6-year program should be an informed and comprehensive decision. We describe the history and current status of the combined EM programs, discuss the process of applying to a combined EM program, describe the life of combined EM residents, and explore common career opportunities available to combined EM program graduates.
