Staffing in the adult and pediatric EDs is provided by board-certified emergency physicians, PGY 1- 4 residents, emergency medicine subspecialty fellows, and advanced practice providers. Strong and extremely collaborative relationships exist among physicians, advanced practice providers, nursing, and consultative services.
All faculty report to the Director of Service for the Department of Emergency Medicine at Denver Health, and contribute to our mission of patient care, educational, research, and professional development, and hold faculty appointments in the School of Medicine.
