Sinai-Grace Residency Faculty

The Faculty of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Wayne State University represent a wide range of interest and accomplishments. The faculty supports two separate excellent residency programs as well as fellowships in clinical and basic science research, toxicology, and administration. This is all done in an urban fast paced practice setting as well as a busy community ED. We are intimately involved in medical student, resident and fellow education from emergency medicine as well as other departments. We are committed to serve as leaders on a National level for emergency medicine as well as locally. We have been trail blazers in all aspects of emergency medicine.
