About Us


Welcome to the BerbeeWalsh Department of Emergency Medicine. We invite you to explore this website to learn more about our educational training programs, clinical sites and initiatives, our community, and some of what makes our department unique.

While Emergency Medicine at UW is young at a decade old, our passion and dedication to building and maintaining a strong core of people, practices, and programs has led to tremendous growth. Our commitment to excellence spans all areas in which we are engaged, including education, research, and providing remarkable patient care. We offer outstanding educational programs for medical students, residents, and fellows and conduct innovative research.

We are deeply committed to improving the health and well-being of the people of Wisconsin and beyond, a goal fundamentally linked to the mission of the UW School of Medicine and Public Health. By working in partnership with physicians, hospitals, prehospital providers, and communities we provide Wisconsin families with local, accessible health care every day.

Our internal motto speaks to this commitment and to our deep-rooted values:

Everyone. Every time. Everywhere.

To learn more, we invite you to read a message from our distinguished Chair, and to visit our education, clinical care, and academic sections pages.
