Emergency Medical Services for Children

Children are not small adults. Injured and ill children have special needs and require a different approach to care than adults. The goal of EMSC is to improve the quality of emergency care for children.  Program activities are directed to ensure the availability of appropriate resources and adequately trained personnel in order to effectively meet the emergency care needs of the critically ill and injured child.

Program activities are directed by the EMSC Advisory Board. The Co-Chairpersons of the Advisory Board are:

Michael Kim, MD, FAAP, UW Hospital and Clinics
(Other co-chair position currently vacant)
