Letter from The Department Chair
The Harbor-UCLA Emergency Medicine residency program has two fundamental priorities. The first being the care of our patients and community in LA county, and the second being the training of confident and capable Emergency Medicine physicians that can become the next leaders in education and clinical excellence. Being a proud member of the Class of '02, and watching every year of graduating residents since then, I can honestly state that we achieve these two objectives. My role in the department is to support the faculty and the residents throughout this process, while ensuring that the department continues to consistently fulfill its responsibility to the public. In addition to inspiring faculty, our patients are our teachers, and they deserve our dedication and commitment to upholding our duty to treat them with the best care possible. Our residents in turn, inspire patients, medical students, each other, our colleagues, and faculty with their commitment to the patients and our community. I am honored to work alongside such accomplished physicians, as well as the next generation of Emergency Medicine providers.
