The Highland Hospital Emergency Medicine Residency has a dedication to training a diverse group of emergency medicine residents, including those that are underrepresented in medicine.  In addition to underrepresented minorities, we include those that are first in their family to go to college and LGBTQ medical students as individuals underrepresented in medicine.  We believe our ED providers reflect the all the patients we serve and are excited to have you join our Highland family!
