It is my pleasure to welcome you to our Department of Emergency Medicine's web-portal at The Ohio State University and Wexner Medical Center. I sincerely hope that you find these web-pages useful and informative. We at OSU are dedicated and proud to provide the best possible patient care, while respecting the individual's background and needs. We endeavor to provide evidence based education and clinical decision making. We believe that innovation is strongly linked to improvements in patient care and research findings. Our shared vision is based upon our leading principles of fairness, transparency and accountability. We believe that innovations in our mission areas of education, clinical care and research can unify and improve emergency care (EC), including through important interdisciplinary collaborations which desires to personalize EC delivery.

We see ourselves as team members, importantly linked to our Nursing, technical and support staff, in all that we do clinically. Details on our academic missions of teaching and research include pages for the medical student interest group, EM residency training, fellowships, faculty, and programmatic efforts in our clinical and basic research foci. My thanks for viewing our pages and do please contact me if you have any questions.
