General Emergency Medicine
The Division of General Emergency Medicine focuses on the care of all emergent illnesses or injuries that require immediate medical attention across multiple institutions at UT Southwestern and beyond. GEM is the Department of Emergency Medicine's largest group of faculty, Advanced Practice Providers, and staff. We share common goals of patient-first clinical service, communications, and career development. GEM functions as the sounding board for new initiatives and projects for the Department as a whole.
Within GEM, there are multiple sections and areas of expertise. Our concentrations include:
- Clinical ultrasound
- Medical informatics
- Advanced Practice Provider training
GEM faculty deliver Graduate Medical Education through one of the country’s largest and most successful Emergency Medicine residency programs. Yearly we train over 350 learners through our Undergraduate Medical Education mission with nine Emergency Medicine courses. The academic environment created through these activities collectively benefits us all – but most importantly benefits the emergent patient right in front of us during their time of need.
