Emergency Medicine Overview
The Emergency Medicine Residency at Garden City Hospital was established
in 1985. We are dedicated to providing quality clinical and didactic education
to residents. Graduating residents have a 98% first time pass rate for
the American Board of Osteopathic Emergency Medicine licensure exam. Garden
City Hospital's Emergency Medicine services have been provided by
DeGarA, PLLC. This is a Michigan-based EM group with a strong osteopathic
tradition. They have years of residency training experience overseeing
the program at Pontiac Osteopathic Hospital, now McLaren Oakland. We are
a very energetic and enthusiastic group and look forward to working with
you in the future.
The program includes organized didactics weekly on Wednesday mornings,
including grand rounds, case reviews, M&M conference, and Tintanelli
textbook review. Residents assume progressive responsibility in the Emergency
Department during their four years. Required out-rotations in pediatrics
and trauma are available locally; time exists for outside electives as well.
Applications are submitted via ERAS. Interviews include a one-on-one meeting
with the program director, an opportunity to shadow in the ED, and attending
a didactic session to meet current residents and faculty. A rotation at
GCH is helpful but not required to be considered for an interview.
