Emergency Medicine

About Emergency Medicine

We treat patients throughout the upper Gulf Coast at the USA Health Trauma Center on the campus of University Hospital. Traumas are usually accidental or intentional injuries that lead to life-threatening situations. Persons suffering injuries in automobile accidents, from gunshot wounds or stabbings, or in fires are transported to the Trauma Center where a dedicated staff of emergency medicine physicians, trauma surgeons and other specially trained clinical staff stand ready to treat their injuries.

Patients experiencing major illnesses and emergencies such as broken bones, cuts and concussions are typically treated by our emergency medicine team. Using the most advanced technology, they are trained to take care of cardiac, orthopaedic, stroke and other emergencies.

USA College of Medicine

Our physicians are also educators in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine. Visit the Department of Emergency Medicine to learn about its academic mission and residency program.
