History

Our Department of Emergency Medicine is committed to providing patient-centered, efficient care; applying leading-edge skills to combat serious illness and injury; training the next generation of emergency medicine experts, and conducting innovative research to prevent injury and disease.

We are the detectives of medicine, with laboratory, bedside ultrasound and advanced imaging at our fingertips. Coupled with a patient's history and physical exam, we deduce what is wrong and gain the satisfaction of seeing the benefits of our treatment in real time.
