Letter from the Chair
Thank you for visiting our web pages!
The Department of Emergency Medicine grew out of the consolidation of two renowned tertiary-care hospitals, Medical College of Pennsylvania Hospital and Hahnemann University Hospital, and the faculty of their medical schools. Today, our department includes emergency medicine specialists, and subspecialists in medical toxicology, occupational and environmental medicine, and emergency bedside ultrasound.
The Department of Emergency Medicine trains residents and fellows at Hahnemann University Hospital, Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital, Mercy Hospital of Philadelphia and St. Christopher's Hospital for Children campuses. At each location, EM-residency-trained specialists are always available on site. These four training sites represent 150,000 emergency encounters annually, encompassing all ages and types of acute problems.
As the largest and oldest training program in emergency medicine in the Philadelphia area, through its predecessor schools, Drexel University College of Medicine has a long history of commitment to high quality graduate training in the specialty of emergency medicine. In addition to the Emergency Medicine Residency Program, we offer a fellowship in Medical Toxicology and Medical Simulation, and we co-sponsor the Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children.
