Providing compassionate, state-of-the-art patient care

Our dedicated team of physicians, nurses, residents, and specialists provide acute and critical care for more than 75,000 visits a year at the Marc and Laura Andreessen Emergency Department, a designated Level I Adult & Pediatric Trauma Center. 

We are also dedicated to training medical students and residents in the art of Emergency Medicine. The department offers a four-year residency program to 15 residents each year, providing unique educational experiences in a wide variety of clinical settings. Academic faculty and post-graduates in ACGME-approved fellowships are engaged in active research to  develop leading-edge treatments, ensuring patients have access to the most up-to-date therapies available. 

Our faculty and staff specialize in providing superb care and training, in particular within the sub-specialties of International Medicine, Wilderness Medicine, Ultrasound, Medical Simulation, Cardiovascular, Emergency Medical Services, and Social and Population Health.
