No, the first 2 days of orientation as well as all clinical shifts are mandatory. With limited space in the ED, it is impossible to make special schedule accommodations. 

I want to schedule my residency interviews with one or more of the EM programs. What do I do?

Our department hosts three Emergency Medicine residency programs, two categorical Emergency Medicine programs, and one Combined Emergency Medicine and Pediatrics program.

The interview process for these three programs is slightly different for each. You are welcome to apply to any or all of the programs and can interview for any or all of the programs while on your Emergency Medicine Rotation.  You must apply through ERAS and interview for each program you wish to be considered for. Please note that each program has its own NRMP identification number that you must select in ERAS and eventually, in your rank list.

There will be two days allotted to those that wish to interview while rotating here. Students will be made aware of these dates during orientation. If you have any questions, please email Sonya Martyna-Seaman at

No, we only accept students from LCME accredited schools.

Emergency Medicine/Critical Care, Toxicology and EM Subinternship are the only electives that accept out-of-state students at this time.

You will be working at both Banner - University Campus and Banner - South Campus and will need to commute to both locations. Public transportation is available but may be challenging for a night shift.

I have another question, where do I get the answer?

Please email your question to Sonya Martyna-Seaman,, so she can get an answer for you and add it to the list!
