DEM Receives 2024 Outstanding Department Award for Excellence and Innovation in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Emergency Medicine

Emergency Medicine is a broad field and our faculty have a number of clinical and research interests. Areas of existing research expertise within our department already include cardiac arrest, pre-hospital EMS care (including stroke diagnosis and management), point-of-care ultrasound, health policy (especially ED crowding, ambulance diversion, patients with high ED utilization, and health disparities), procedural sedation, infectious disease management (including The Joint Commission standards for antibiotic administration), to name a few.

Our department also has a strong interest in global emergency care. We helped to establish and remain affiliated with the Emergency Medicine Residency program at  Muhumbilli University of Health and Allied Sciences in Tanzania by providing mentorship and resident exchange. We also conduct research and send our residents to the emergency department in Chiapas, Mexico.
