Meet our current Emergency Medicine (EM) and Emergency Medicine/Internal Medicine (EM/IM) residents

Recruiting and developing “leaders” and “scholars” builds a foundation of success in our residency programs. Our residents provide a leadership impact ranging from their excellence in patient care to their participation in areas of organized medicine. Many of our residents go on to complete fellowships and gravitate toward academic careers and leadership positions.

For further information about our past residents and their activities, please visit the Douglas A. Rund Emergency Medicine Alumni Society website. The society's mission is to connect and enrich the relationships between former residency graduates and the Department of Emergency Medicine at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.
