Welcome from our Program Director
Thank you for your interest in the Sunrise Health GME Consortium Emergency Medicine Residency Program. We are located in Las Vegas, Nevada, and our training facilities have an aggregate patient volume of 240,000 patient visits per year. Both are high acuity hospitals with admission rates in the 30% range and critical care admissions in the 9% range.
About our program
Canadian and American allopathic and osteopathic students and physicians are encouraged to apply for emergency medicine residency through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS).
Applicants must successfully complete USMLE step 1 and/or COMLEX level 1, as well as USMLE Step 2CK and/or Step 2 CS prior to being considered for an interview.
International medical graduates (IMG) may be considered if the applicant has graduated from an International Medical Education Directory (IMED) school. IMG applicants must have completed Steps 1, 2CK and 2CS and must also be certified by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG).
All applicants must meet the requirements for a restricted residency-training license in the State of Nevada. All applicants must be either US Citizens or be authorized to work in the US.

The Modular Active Learning Curriculum for Emergency Medicine (MALCEM) consists of weekly literature and video modules that correspond to the emergency medicine core curriculum. One module (50-80 pages) is assigned per week. Residents are expected to come ready to discuss the topical material and will be evaluated on their individual performance.
Core faculty and residents participate in a transactional group learning discussion that is moderated by a trained faculty moderator with other core and clinical faculty providing clinical commentary.
After the modular discussion, a high-fidelity patient care simulation based upon the skills or critical decisions related to each module is presented. These integrated simulations are done in a group feedback environment with each resident or core faculty providing feedback to the simulation participants. In this way, the resident knowledge base is built from self-learning to group learning to experiential learning in a sequence designed to maximize retention and optimize utility.
A plenary lecture end the didactic sessions. Plenary lectures include institutional topics, outside speakers, resident presentations, resident-led board review, or faculty presentations. Individual residents provide at least one plenary lecture per year in the second or third year.
Journal clubs, mortality and morbidity, and grand rounds presentations round out the educational experience.
