Additionally, the Department collaborates with the Emergency Departments at Lancaster General Hospital, Chester County Hospital and Princeton Medical Center.

Emergency Medicine has a 4 year, highly successful, academically oriented residency program with 46 residents, multiple fellowships, and several nationally acclaimed research programs housed within its Center for Resuscitation Science and the Center for Emergency Care Policy Research. There are over 80 attendings across the three primary academic sites and there are close academic affiliations and programmatic alliances with the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

Vision

 

As engines of knowledge and new ideas, universities have the unique potential to define the future rather than be defined by it; to pioneer change rather than merely manage it. To do so requires a plan both visionary and pragmatic. The Penn Compact 2022 motivates community members to innovate, be radically inclusive, and positively impact their local, national, and global communities. 

 

Penn’s fundamental priorities — increasing access, integrating knowledge and engaging locally, nationally and globally — are supported by the three core values that make us uniquely Penn: inclusion, innovation, and impact.
