Christiana Care Health System’s innovative, combined Emergency Medicine/Family Medicine (EM/FM) allopathic residency program, the first of its kind in the nation, salutes its first graduate this year.
Blake Gustafson, M.D., chief EM-FM resident in 2007 joined the five-year, dual-certification program, which was heralded as a “curriculum to address the full spectrum of patient illness and injury, from emergent and trauma care to primary care and continuity of care.”
The program offers two residency spots each year. The curriculum blends academic and practical components, including rotations in both Family and Emergency medicine, which already have similar rotations at Christiana Care, especially in the first year of their respective categorical programs.
