Emergency Medicine is a medical specialty that provides comprehensive emergency care. The spectrum of emergency medicine includes humanity as well as medical care for emergency patients. Since the Korean Society of Emergency Medicine has been established and the training course for emergency residents has begun, quality improvement of the training course still remains to be one of the most important issues in emergency medicine. This report is to understand the current status of training of emergency residents and to improve the quality of training of emergency residents. The survey was performed with questionnaires regarding current status of training and opinions to improve quality of training. The questionnaires were sent to all emergency physicians and emergency residents registered to the Korean Society of Emergency Medicine via an electronic mail or a printed letter. The response rates were 49.6% for emergency physicians and 35.8% for emergency residents. On the basis of the result of this survey, we suggest five proposals for improving the quality of resident training course. These include complete adherence of each institution to training guidelines presented by the Korean Society of Emergency Medicine, development of the education program compatible to each institution, shortening of length of training duration from 4 years to 3 years, promotion of the training environment, and introduction of evaluation examination to the training course.
