Evanston Hospital was one of the first five Emergency Medicine programs in the country and merged with the Emergency Medicine program at Northwestern University Medical School in 1981. As of July 2009, the 28-year merger ceased to exist and our new affiliation is with the University of Chicago, Pritzker School of Medicine. Residents from the Emergency Medicine program at John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County also rotate through our system.

Our legacy is strong with over 200 graduating residents and many going on to national prominence. Leaders in SAEM, ABEM, Test Development, Residency Review Committee for Emergency Medicine, Oral Board examiners, Residency Directors and researchers have done their training through our Emergency Medicine program.

NorthShore University HealthSystem Division of Emergency Medicine has 50 board certified emergency medicine physicians with many involved in local and national activities. Additionally, we have a robust research and educational program with a strong emphasis on medical simulation.
