What does your program offer that residents can’t get anywhere else?
A very high volume of critical care. Large volume of critical procedures—we have a ton of specialties represented at BUMC but keep the majority of the procedures in the ED. ECMO cannulation for ECPR in ED. Large volume penetrating and blunt trauma. Weekly conference with guest lectures given by top specialists in their fields. All centrally localized in beautiful downtown Dallas.
What is the work-life balance like?
We pride ourselves in promoting resident wellness by focusing on shift scheduling and allowing time for family and extracurricular activities. We hold group get-togethers with faculty and have wellness events for team building quarterly in lieu of regular conference didactics. We attempt to promote a feeling of family at BUMC. Residents enjoy many of the amenities that Dallas offers – restaurants, breweries, outdoor spaces, trails, and local lakes.
