Our Providers

The Department of Emergency Medicine Faculty for 2012-2013

We employ physicians, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, and clinical and administrative support staff  dedicated to providing the highest quality of emergency medical services and Emergency Department based clinical care, outstanding education, and innovative research efforts through a coordinated team effort.

The ED staff works together as a team to provide patient and family centered emergency care in some of the most vulnerable times of a person's life. In making decisions that affect the care of the providers and patients, the entire ED team has a voice: physicians, physicians-in-training, physician assistants, nurses, emergency technicians, secretarial and registration staff. The ED Leadership Team provides leadership for the entire ED and is committed to support the care of both providers and patients.
