History

Academic Emergency Medicine began at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in 1978 with the recruiting of Ronald D. Stewart, MD. Dr Stewart started as Medical Director of the City of Pittsburgh Department of Public Safety Bureau of EMS; with the support of the University, Dr. Stewart founded the Center for Emergency Medicine of Western Pennsylvania to advance emergency care, research and training.

In 1981, the University of Pittsburgh Affiliated Residency in Emergency Medicine began as a conjoint effort with Mercy Hospital, West Penn Hospital, and Presbyterian University Hospital. Dr Paul M. Paris was the inaugural Director of the Affiliated Residency Program and Associate Medical Director of the City of Pittsburgh EMS. In 1988, Allan B. Wolfson assumed the Program Director role, and in 2008, the name changed to the University of Pittsburgh Residency in Emergency Medicine, signaling a common structure and home for all participating sites. Michele L. Dorfsman assumed the Program Director Role July 1, 2016 after serving as Assistant Program Director for 10 years.
