Our emergency medicine physicians are faculty members of the University of Maryland School of Medicine-one of the most prominent medical schools in the nation. We offer employment opportunities for academic clinicians in varied settings. Associated with respected community hospital and affiliated programs, we operate five emergency departments in Baltimore City. Serving a diverse urban population, our physicians provide the highest level of care in state-of-the-art facilities in the downtown area. The four major areas for which faculty appointments are based on are: teaching, contributions to knowledge, clinical activities, and service.
Our physicians touch the lives of medical students and residents each day. Their mission to educate begins at the bedside imparting knowledge and teaching technical skills necessary to successfully treat patients. We lecture; we provide hands-on cadaver and suture labs. We teach airway management and ultrasound skills, as well as provide small group sessions for first-year medical students.
Our physicians contribute to the advancement of emergency medicine through independent and collaborative research, publications in peer-reviewed journal articles, book chapters, podcasts and lecturing locally, nationally, and internationally.
Our physicians are committed to the highest quality of patient care, improving patient satisfaction and patient safety. The Department of Emergency Medicine is proud of its long affiliation with four well-respected community hospitals in the City of Baltimore. In addition to providing patient care at the University of Maryland Medical Center, for the past 15 years, we have touched the lives of Baltimore's citizens by meeting their emergency healthcare needs at Mercy Medical Center, The Baltimore Veterans' Affairs Medical Center, and University of Maryland Medical Center Midtown Campus.
Our faculty now provides care of the highest quality to over 182,000 patients annually. Each of these additions has brought more than just clinical activity for our residents and medical students.
The Baltimore VA Medical Center and Mercy Medical Center are essential components in resident education, each adding clinical and systematic experience in settings that residency graduates may see in their professional lives but otherwise would not necessarily see in their training.
University of Maryland Medical Center Midtown Campus, a more recent addition to the family, provides additional resources for clinical and educational efforts. By increasing the clinical activity of the Department, the benefits of expansion to the educational and research goals of the Department have always been a central consideration.
Our physicians believe in giving back. Many of our faculty members serve as mentors to medical students, residents and our junior faculty. Our physicians also serve on committees for the School, our affiliate hospitals, state, regional, local and national organizations and review boards.
