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 Alicia Kurtz, MD (UCSF Fresno class of 2017’) for being elected president of the Emergency Medicine Residents  Association (EMRA) for 2016-17.  Founded in 1974, EMRA's mission is to promote "excellence in patient care through the education and development of emergency medicine residency trained physicians".
