Through the Emergency Medicine Enhanced Skills Residency, you will develop critical care skills that will help you recognize and manage acute illness and injury and gain expertise through training in a wide variety of practice settings. Rotations include practice in adult and pediatric tertiary hospitals, urban community hospitals.
Enhance your skills
Gain a foundational understanding of emergency medicine in a community setting. Train in a variety of emergency medicine blocks including trauma, anesthesia and plastic surgery for trauma. Enhance your ability to provide care to patients who have recently been through an emergency medicine situation.
Multiple delivery locations
Experience emergency medicine with the Winnipeg Emergency Medical Service and the Northern Medical Unit of the University of Manitoba. Our second stream in Brandon offers the same experience from a rural medicine perspective.
Though there are minor differences between the rotation structure of the Brandon and Winnipeg programs, both programs aim to develop competency in recognizing and initiating management of acute illness and injury using critical care skills.
