The Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Maryland has approximately 75 board-certified or board-eligible faculty members and a full roster of 49 residents enrolled in one of our three residency tracts (categorical, emergency medicine/international medicine, or emergency medicine/pediatrics). At five clinical sites in Baltimore City, these mentoring physicians and physicians-in-training treat more than 182,000 patients each year.
The Deparmtent of Emergency Medicine has a proud history of serving communities in the Baltimore metropolitan area. In addition to providing patient care at the University of Maryland Medical Center, our faculty staff the emergency departments at five hospitals in downtown Baltimore. These sites provide outstanding clinical education opportunities for our residents and medical students.
Many of our faculty members are well known speakers in national professional forums. Our attending and residents have contributed more than 500 journal articles and book chapters to the medical literature since the 1980s, as well as textbooks on electrocardiography and forensic emergency medicine. Our growing and dynamic research program offers opportunities for individual initiatives as well as collaborative projects with other departments on campus.
