Geisinger is seeking a board certified, Emergency Medicine (EM) trained physician to lead its brand-new EM Residency Program, based at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center (GWV) in Wilkes-Barre, Pa.

Each year, 10 EM residents will be trained at GWV under the supervision and direction of the EM Residency Program Director, who will be responsible for overseeing the educational development and operations of the residency program as well as maintaining an active clinical presence in GWV’s Emergency Department (ED) commensurate with ACGME requirement for an EM program.  An engaged staff with active academic involvement  - an EM fellowship trained ultrasound director, 2 fellowship trained and boarded EMS physicians, experienced administrative leadership, and a Pediatric EM presence - will complement the Program Director as core faculty.  The program has received strong support for its initiation.

Last year, nearly 20% of students matriculated to EM.
