The Department of Emergency Medicine formed a Section of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) in January 2019. The focus of this Section is to continue to push the boundaries of EMS and resuscitation science through education, research, and key partnerships.

Each year, the UW EMS team hosts medical students, residents, and visiting scholars from around the globe to expand understanding of prehospital emergency medicine operations and research.
