About Us

Medical College of Wisconsin Department of Emergency Medicine Chairman’s Welcome

Welcome to the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) Department of Emergency Medicine! Please take some time to peruse our website - exploring our clinical enterprise, educational offerings, research endeavors, and community outreach.

Our Department maintains a thriving clinical practice - including, Froedtert Hospital, the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW), Froedtert Hospital Emergency Department (level 1 trauma center), Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin (CHW), Clement J. Zablocki Veterans Affairs Medical Center Emergency Department, Froedtert and MCW Moorland Reserve Health Center (free-standing) Emergency Department, and four soon-to-open community-based, micro-hospital Emergency Departments. Across this myriad of clinical practices, our faculty, fellows, residents, and advanced practice providers (APPs) care for more than 110,000 patient visits - and rapidly growing - per year.

Our Department is home to a competitive training program of 30 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 Hospital of 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) fellowship program - again attracting some of the brightest and most skilled young emergency physicians from around the country.

Many of our faculty members, fellows, residents, APPs, and staff in the Department are engaged in a host of extramurally-funded, cutting-edge, investigative research. Inquiry in the areas of cardiac arrest and resuscitation, injury, EMS, and others have garnered MCW a reputation as an Emergency Medicine research powerhouse. In fact, MCW is a top National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded, academic Department of Emergency Medicine - helping to catapult us to the forefront of discovery in acute care.

Lastly, mirroring our parent university, the MCW Department of Emergency Medicine is committed to remaining connected to and engaged with our local community. To this end, community engagement is the fourth pillar of our academic missions - on equal footing with patient care, education, and research.

Thank you for visiting our departmental website. As you will see, the MCW Department of Emergency Medicine is dynamic, innovative, rapidly growing - and most importantly, full of talent. Send us an email, give us a call, or stop by to see us - as we’d love to hear from you - and to have you join our team!
