The University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) Department of Emergency Medicine is seeking talented emergency medicine physicians with a passion for education to join the faculty of its EM residency program. Established in 2006, the 3-year EM program has an affiliation with the Air Force, and is comprised of 30 residents, including 2 active duty military residents each year. We pride ourselves in the tremendous sense of camaraderie within our Emergency Department at University Medical Center (UMC) of Southern Nevada, which serves as the only level-1 trauma center and burn center in the state of Nevada and the primary teaching site for the UNLV School of Medicine, with 10 residency programs. The Adult ED and Trauma Resuscitation Center have a combined annual volume of 90,000, serving a diverse patient population with conditions of high complexity and acuity, in addition to the 30,000 children evaluated annually in the separate Pediatric ED. This is a tremendous opportunity from both an academic and clinical perspective, for motivated individuals with an interest in a career in ultrasound education or research, in a department that already includes a well-established research assistant program. Come join our faculty who are actively engaged in both education and community service, with a sincere dedication to training the next generation of emergency medicine providers.
