Residency Vacancy Services

The SAEM Residency Vacancy Service was established to connect EM residency directors with prospective residents to fill unexpected vacancies in training programs. Programs are invited to notify SAEM of any unexpected vacancies or positions created due to program expansion, etc. and SAEM monitors and updates the listings. Prospective emergency medicine residents may review these listings and contact the residency programs directly.
If you would like a Residency Vacancy listed or if information needs to be updated, please email SAEM at
