Founded in 1974 at Valley Medical Center in Fresno County, the Emergency Medicine residency is one of the first EM programs in the country. We offer a four-year program (PGY 1-4) with 10 residents per year, featuring a strong emphasis on clinical teaching and hands-on training.

Our giant, new, state-of-the-art ED at Community Regional Medical Center serves as the only Level 1 trauma center and Burn center for Central California, and handles an annual ED volume of 110,000.





Congratulations to Marc Futernick, MD (UCSF Fresno class of 2000’) for his continued advocacy and leadership in organized EM.  In addition to being the Medical Director of California Hospital in downtown LA, he is the current CAL/ACEP president.
