• Welcome

    Welcome to the University of Iowa Department of Emergency Medicine.  Our department enjoys full clinical status at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics and full departmental status at the Carver College of Medicine. We appreciate your interest in our Emergency Medicine Residency program. We offer a fully accredited residency training program.  Through the Carver College of Medicine we also host several clerkships for medical students interested in Emergency Medicine.

    Our fundamental philosophy is to:

    • Train residents capable of functioning in austere medical environments with minimal back-up
    • Provide flexibility in training to meet individualized learning needs
    • Foster academic EM through scientific discovery, expertise in EM subspecialties, and peer-to-peer learning
