Emergency Medicine resident physicians are recently graduated physicians who are completing their specialty training in Emergency Medicine. Their goal with residency is to become a board-certified Emergency Physician. The term "resident" is derived from the fact that a resident physician will spend many hours at the hospital each week, sometimes approaching 80 or more hours.
Resident physicians help staff the Emergency Department 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. They provide medical care for the community and for individuals when they need it most, while only collecting a meager salary, often less than nurses. Resident Emergency Medicine physicians continue to be on the front line of healthcare during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Myrtle Beach Emergency Medicine Residency Foundation will:
· Promote wellness activities to support the mental health of resident physicians.
· Pay for education opportunities and guest lecturers.
· Support medical research efforts.
· Promote diversity and recruitment of medical students.
· And will provide time to help decompress and balance their lives outside the hospital.
Resident physicians play an active role in the COVID-19 pandemic response and help ensure the safety of the community through medical treatment. They evaluate, test, and treat patients in the Emergency Department, resuscitate those that are critically ill patients. They are on the front lines 24/7/365 to ensure the community has a place to go for quality and compassionate emergency healthcare.
