Our Mission

“To create, integrate, transfer, and apply knowledge.”

The BerbeeWalsh Department of Emergency Medicine advances the specialty of Emergency Medicine for the direct benefit of the citizens of Wisconsin and beyond by providing optimal and outstanding patient care for individual patients and families, while also recognizing the unique role our emergency department plays in filling the health care needs of our communities.

We educate, mentor, and develop future leaders in Emergency Medicine, whether they devote their efforts to advancing emergency prehospital care, research, public health, or public policy. We are collaborative across disciplines, specialties, health systems, and even countries. We work towards our mission within a professional environment that supports and elevates the individual while aiming to build a sense of community and purpose.
