Our faculty and staff offer unparalleled education and training, research, and patient care at the busiest ER in the nation.

About Us

The UT Southwestern Department of Emergency Medicine is made of physicians, trainees, and staff members who are committed to furthering the education, research, and patient care of emergency medicine in Dallas and beyond.

Highlights of the depth and breadth of our unique training experience include:

  • Rotations at two of the largest and busiest hospital emergency departments in the nation (No.1 Parkland Memorial Hospital with 241,968 patients a year and No. 4 Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth with 155,322 patients a year)
  • Training in one of the largest emergency medicine programs in the country with 66 total residents (22 residents a year)
  • Learning from the experts in one of the largest academic emergency medicine faculty groups in the country with 108 faculty members total
  • Exposure to all aspects of emergency medicine subspecialty training with six fellowships sponsored by our department and three co-sponsored.

While the emergency department is where we often treat and care for patients, it is not our sole focus of attention. Emergencies begin outside the hospital – whether in the confines of our homes or on a rain-slicked roadside – therefore, it is our responsibility to ensure and strengthen each link in our communities’ chains of survival and recovery.
