Welcome to the UA Department of Emergency Medicine

Message from the Department Head

It has never been more exciting or important to be an emergency physician and here at the UA Department of Emergency Medicine, we are dedicated to advancing health and wellness through outstanding patient care and research while serving as educators and mentors to our residents, fellows and students.

We are one of the only emergency medicine departments in the nation to offer three distinct residency programs, each with a unique mission, vision and goal.  Our emergency care is integrated within The University of Arizona Health Network and this includes the University and South Campus hospitals.

Please take a moment to learn more about our department and our efforts to train tomorrow’s leaders in emergency medicine.
