Las Vegas, NV Sept. 18, 2017 — MountainView Hospital announced today it received accreditation
from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)
for its Emergency Medicine residency program for 32 residents.
The Sunrise Health GME Consortium Emergency Medicine Residency Program
located at MountainView Hospital will have eight positions available the
first year, with the first Emergency Medicine residents joining MountainView
beginning July 2018. This accreditation brings the total number of residency
positions available at the hospital, among its accredited graduate programs,
to 141 positions.
ACGME is a private, non-profit organization that evaluates and accredits
graduate medical education (GME) programs. Specialized training in Emergency
Medicine takes place over a three-year period.
Residents of the Emergency Medicine program will rotate between MountainView
Hospital and Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center. Dr. Michael P. Allswede
serves as the program director over the Emergency Medicine residency program.
“We are excited to open an Emergency Medicine residency program at
MountainView Hospital, adding to our expanding portfolio of residency
programs,” said Jeremy Bradshaw, MountainView Hospital Chief Executive
Officer. “Las Vegas provides a unique opportunity for Emergency
Medicine training, from the suburban community setting of MountainView
Hospital, to the urban and pediatric emergency medicine, as well as trauma
modalities at sister hospital Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center, only
minutes from one of the nation’s largest tourist destinations.”
Under the newly accredited Sunrise Health GME Consortium, which includes
the Emergency Medicine program, accreditation marks another important
milestone for MountainView Hospital’s Graduate Medical Education
department and is the fifth accreditation for a residency program received
by the hospital. MountainView Hospital launched its Graduate Medical Education
program in 2015 with the accreditation of its Internal Medicine Residency
Program from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education
(ACGME). Since that time, MountainView Hospital has received accreditation
for additional programs including General Surgery, OB-GYN and Transitional Year.
