Department of Emergency Medicine

It is with great excitement and enthusiasm that I welcome you to our website. Our vision is for a Department of Emergency Medicine that serves as a model of excellence for what is possible for people: a safe haven where training the next generation takes place in an environment of scholarly inquiry with a commitment to well-being and where exceptional patient-centered emergency medical care is delivered with compassion, timeliness, dignity, and a driving commitment to honor the individual and the human spirit. Our intention is to combine the latest science and technology with an ever-present awareness of the value of the human touch as a power for healing.

The Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Missouri School of Medicine is dedicated to providing high-quality emergency care for patients, offering exceptional educational experiences for residents and students, and continually pursuing knowledge and scholarship. We provide state-of-the-art care with more than 50,000 patient visits annually at two locations – University Hospital, an ACS-verified Level 1 trauma center, and MU Women's and Children's Hospital. 

It's an exciting time of expansion for the MU Health System, which is building a strong and diverse faculty and staff to support both excellence in clinical care and academics.
