EM: Past, Present and Future with Dr. Pancioli
- Emergency Medicine started in 1960s with first "ER group" starting out in 1961. At that time the ED was the weakest and most neglected department in the hospital and was staffed by a variety of physicians (IM, family med, surgery, derm, etc), none of them EM trained.
- Bruce Janiak was the first EM resident with the first EM residency at UC in 1970. This was a 2 year program with only 2 dedicated ED months.
