About Us

Message from the Chair

Welcome to the University of Michigan Department of Emergency Medicine. Here at U-M, we are dedicated to creating the future of emergency care through advanced clinical practice, cutting edge research, innovative education, and service to the health system, community, and our global partners.

Robert W. Neumar, M.D., Ph.D.

Our clinical operation is focused on continuously improving the quality of patient care and optimizing the patient care experience. Our training programs for students, residents and fellows incorporate the latest innovations in medical education. Our broad research portfolio spans the spectrum of emergency medicine, ranging from molecular biology to health policy, with significant expertise in multicenter clinical trials, injury prevention and emergency critical care. In terms of service, our faculty hold significant leadership roles in the medical school, hospitals, health system and national organizations. They also serve the local community in Ann Arbor and globally through our leadership of emergency medicine training programs in Ghana.

Most importantly, what makes Emergency Medicine at the University of Michigan stand out is the people, and their dedication to making a difference. Combining that with the infrastructure and resources of a world class University and Health Care System, I am confident we will continue to play a significant role in creating the future of emergency care.
