George E. Wahlen Department of Veteran Affairs Medical Center
The Salt Lake Veterans Affair Medical Center is a 102 bed tertiary care regional referral center for the VA system. The VA hospital exposes EM residents to acute exacerbations of chronic progressive pulmonary and cardiac disease. The incidence of these diseases is much lower in the general population of Utah than in most other training environments, and residents would not otherwise have sufficient experience in the acute care of these disorders.
The institution is known for its excellent medical intensive care experience and will provide greater opportunity for progressive responsibility for Emergency Medicine residents.
