Welcome to the Department of Emergency Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine!   We are dedicated to delivering exceptional clinical care, training the future leaders of emergency medicine, and creating new knowledge through innovative research.

Our physicians, nurses, residents, and staff work hard every day to keep Penn EM at the forefront of emergency care. We strive to continuously improve care quality, efficiency, and patient experience. Penn Medicine consistently ranks among the top medical centers in the nation, and our Department enjoys high quality consultation services and interactions with top programs in orthopedics, trauma surgery, oncology, neurology and other specialty areas.

We support a highly-competitive four year EM residency program, led by a talented team of physician educators who serve to educate the national EM leaders of the future. We offer advanced fellowship training in EM/critical care, toxicology, and ultrasound, as well as other tailored opportunities.

We strive to be leaders in generating new approaches to improving patient outcomes. We are proud of the deeply collaborative and impactful work led by the physician-scientists in our Department. Our broad research portfolio spans cellular biology, translational resuscitation science, health policy and economics, and social media.

I welcome you to explore our website and learn more about the exciting aspects of Penn EM that make us proud to come to work every day.
