The primary training site

If you’re looking for a career in emergency medicine, there is no better training site than Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. It’s a busy, not-for-profit hospital with over 50,000 Emergency Department (ED) visits annually.

There is a wide variety of patient acuity and pathology present in patients treated in the ED and admitted to the hospital. This patient population will provide you with strong clinical experience and the skills to provide high-quality, patient-centered care. Geisinger Wyoming Valley has 252 inpatient beds across a variety of tertiary clinical specialties.         

GWV EM curriculum summary

The medical center serves our region as an ACS accredited Level I trauma center, a comprehensive stroke center, a Joint Commission–certified Comprehensive Heart Attack Center and an accredited chest pain center. Add in the newly expanded Henry Cancer Center, our Level III NICU and the robust array of subspecialty care on site, and you can see why this is a great place to train for an emergency medicine specialty.
