Our Department is home to a competitive training program of 36 residents – attracting top-notch housestaff from medical schools across the nation. And are you afraid of caring for sick kids? Well, our residency graduates aren’t! Our residents train in the Emergency Department at the Children’s Wisconsin (level 1 pediatric trauma center) – which sees over 60,000 patients visits annually. We also offer a state-of-the-art, nationally-recognized Emergency Medical Systems (EMS), Emergency Ultrasonography, and Medical Toxicology fellowship programs – again attracting some of the brightest and most skilled young emergency physicians from around the country. In addition, our Department co-sponsors training opportunities in Critical Care Medicine and Hospice and Palliative Care Medicine with the Departments of Medicine and Anesthesiology, respectively.
We will strive to achieve equity within the workplace by cultivating an inclusive community that promotes a positive work environment for people of all gender identities. We will hold our trainees, staff, faculty and leaders accountable in reaching this goal. We will identify opportunities for improvement and create action plans to address instances where our values are not upheld. #WEWILLMCW
