Expertise is required in the specific area of emergency medicine. Applicants must have an M.D. degree. Board Certified in Emergency Medicine, candidates should be residency-trained and board certified in emergency medicine by the American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM).
Teaching responsibilities may include didactic and bedside instruction of emergency medicine residents and fellows, medical students interested in emergency medicine, and fellows and housestaff from other clinical departments.
Clinical responsibilities may include providing emergency medical care to patients presented to the emergency department at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Penn Presbyterian Medical Center.
Research or scholarship responsibilities may include having a track record of extramural research grant funding, including federal “R01” or equivalent mechanisms, and have national recognition as experts in their field. Specific consideration will be given to candidates with expertise in: (1) injury prevention, (2) critical care and Resuscitation science, or (3) health services/population health.

Each site has a unique, diverse, highly acute patient population consisting of local and referral patients. 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 faculty 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. The Department has active collaborations with other University of Pennsylvania Centers and schools such as the Penn Medicine Center for Healthcare Innovation, Wharton Business School, Leonard Davis Institute for Health Care Economics, and the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics among others.
