University of Wisconsin Emergency Medicine 3 + 1 Program
The University of Wisconsin Emergency Medicine Residency Program offers both a traditional three year residency program and an optional addition year. This innovative 3+1 program is intended for residents interested in an additional year that allows flexibility for pursuing clinical, academic, and/or personal interests.
Residents seeking this option will complete their residency program in three years and then enter a one-year fellowship. The type of fellowship will be determined based on resident interest and division needs. Interested residents should have a clear idea of their goals and should approach Dr. Hamedani by September 1st.
Who is eligible for the 3+1 program?
Currently this program is offered to University of Wisconsin Emergency Medicine residents only. It is not open to external candidates.
Who should consider a 3+1 program?
Any resident who would like an additional year of training to pursue clinical, academic, and/or personal interests should consider this program. For example, a program can be developed under traditional fellowship areas or new, innovative academic areas.
How much will I be paid?
Compensation for the 3+1 year is extremely competitive, often more than twice as much as national standards for PGY-4 year and accredited fellowships.
How many shifts will I work?
Fellows will work a total of eight shifts per month. Furthermore, moonlighting opportunities exist at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics Emergency Department, Med Flight, and Beloit Memorial Hospital. Additional compensation is provided for moonlighting.
Where will I work?
Fellowship opportunities exist at either the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics (UWHC) or Beloit, depending on interest and availability.
How do I apply?
If interested in the 3+1 program, please inform Dr. Azita Hamedani (even if tentative interest) by September 1st. In order to create an opportunity and tailor a fellowship program, it is helpful to know as soon as there is potential interest.
