As Chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine and Chief of Emergency Services of the University of Pennsylvania Health System, I am proud to lead a department that provides the highest quality emergency care in the region and an unparalleled training environment for the next generation of clinicians, scholars, and leaders in the field of emergency medicine. Our commitment to and track record of discovery and innovation are outstanding, and central to our mission.

The Department of Emergency Medicine has excellence at its very roots. We have set and exceeded national benchmarks for academic achievement within the specialty, for many years. At the core of our success is the drive and motivation of some of the most talented faculty nationwide. It is an honor to serve as a leader for such a committed and accomplished group.

Our department is guided by the imperatives to achieve professional excellence in clinical care, research, and education. We thrive within the collegial, intellectually exciting environment of the Perelman School of Medicine and the University of Pennsylvania. We uphold the highest standards of the practice of emergency medicine, and strive to disseminate new knowledge. The work of our faculty reaches far and wide, with international recognition for the scope and breadth of our emergency care research.

One of the best things about leading a diligent and creative group of individuals is realizing how much we have to offer to the communities we serve — our patients, students, national and international colleagues, and global health partners. We have long been on a path to pre-eminence and I am deeply and personally committed through all the activities of the department to continue to guide us in that direction.
