EmCare's Residency Program Takes Off!

EmCare hosts many events for residents in Emergency Medicine and other specialties

Several years ago, EmCare recognized the importance of recruiting residents and began hosting Educational Events for programs throughout the country.  In 2014, we conducted 73 events.  During the first quarter of 2015, we conducted 33 residency events and we are planning over 125 more events before the end of the year.  EmCare is very excited about the expansion and growth of the National Residency Program to support the efforts of our growing recruitment team. We have three National Residency Program Coordinators who lead this program.  They are Stephanie Ambuehl, Amanda DiRuggieri and Jamie Morgan. 
The coordinators start the process by reaching out to the chief residents at select residency programs across the country.  Once they have interest, they select a date and venue and contact recruiters and physician leaders for the event.  After choosing an appropriate topic for the physician leader to speak on, they send out invitations and promote the event on the EmCare website.  The coordinators work with the venues to set-up and audio visual needs and finally select the menus for each event.  As the event draws near, they send reminder emails to the residents and updates with lists and event information to the recruiters. 
EmCare’s goals for the National Residency Program are to provide important educational support to our incoming physicians while in their training, to begin building relationships with these prospective providers, create brand awareness, and to offer specialized attention and support to the residents.
The program has primarily hosted events for these Emergency Medicine & Internal Medicine residency programs!  This year we are adding more events for Surgery, Anesthesiology and Radiology residents later on this year.
If you’re interested in setting up an EmCare Educational Dinner or participating in an upcoming event, please contact the National Residency Team at 855-367-3650.
