Supporting exceptional achievement through unparalleled investment in education, research, and remarkable patient care.
Training Tomorrow's Leaders in Emergency Medicine
All medical students at the University of Wisconsin complete rotations in the emergency department, and our department offers additional course and extracurricular opportunities for students interested in spending more time exploring our specialty.
Our emergency medicine residency program prepares physicians for the future of healthcare within both academic and community settings, and offers an optional fourth year for residents seeking to undertake advanced training.
Our department sponsors several emergency medicine fellowships and postgraduate training opportunities designed to support junior physicians in launching their careers while learning from exceptional faculty mentors.
Advancing Emergency Care Through Research
The Department of Emergency Medicine’s federally funded clinical and translational research enterprise focuses on health services and care transitions studies.
Our faculty investigators are nationally recognized leaders in much of the research they conduct, yielding critical discoveries in areas such as dementia and emergency care for older adults, antimicrobial stewardship, and health disparities.
And our Emergency Department Research Coordinator Program provides high-quality clinical study coordination and enrollment services for UW campus and industry researchers.
Providing Remarkable Patient Care
With four different emergency departments and world-renowned air medical capabilities, we are equipped to provide patients with a complete range of primary and specialty emergency care services.
