University of Maryland

History

Their emergency medicine residency program began accepting its first categorical residents in 1991. Since that time, the residency has expanded to also include a 5-year combined emergency medicine/internal medicine program, a 5-year combined emergency medicine/pediatrics program, and a 6-year combined emergency medicine/internal medicine/critical care program. Its medical center is the only one in the country that hosts all four of these emergency medicine residencies. Each year, it accepts 13 residents for the categorical program and 2 each for the combined programs.
