Residents practice intubationsIn addition to the employee resources offered by Augusta University, the Department of Emergency Medicine offers its residents a number of other benefits, including:

  • CME Dollars. Each incoming resident is given a CME account with a balance of $1500. Broad latitude is given regarding what educational material may be purchased with the funds. Examples include the purchase of books, ACEP Scientific Assembly conference attendance, etc.
  • Research Dollars. When original research is presented at a national conference, the department will reimburse up to $1000 to mitigate expenses. Note that this money is in addition to the CME dollars described above.
  • “Resident Day.” The residents are provided an additional day off during the Spring of each year. The date is usually around the time of the In-Training Examination and additional faculty coverage is provided in the ED to allow all residents to attend. The residency provides funds for a group activity as well as a catered lunch.

We also supply our residents with:

  • Tintinalli's Emergency Medicine (digital or print)
  • iPad
  • EMRA Membership
  • Rosh Review
  • $300 Jag Card Funds for use at campus restaurants and bookstore
  • Two sets of scrubs and a white coat (one set per incoming resident)
