Message from the Chair: 'A Year of Firsts' 

Looking back on the last year fills me with deep gratitude for our teams and their passion for patient care, education and innovation. On the anniversary of our first year as a Department, I am so proud of all the hard work and dedication that has brought us to this point. 

In addition to taking our first steps forward as a newly minted Department of Emergency Medicine, the education team supported our first expansion of the EM Residency from 9 to 12 residents, the research team brought on our first translational research fellow, and together we celebrated our first R01 grant in the Department. 

As a team, we have taken this opportunity to set the foundation for our new department by focusing on building a strong leadership team, defining our Mission, Vision and Values, and looking for ways to better support our teams and faculty. 

The year ahead holds much promise as we welcome our first Education Fellow in EM, work towards our first core clinical Medical Student rotation in Emergency Medicine, and plan for future clinical expansion. 

Please enjoy the following highlights from our Department and join me in welcoming new members to our growing team!
