New Emergency Medicine chair

Nathan Kuppermann, professor and a specialist in pediatric emergency medicine in the UC Davis Department of Emergency Medicine, has been selected chair of the department.

Kuppermann has more than 20 years of clinical, research and administrative experience in academic medicine. He joined UC Davis in 1995.

In 2001, Kuppermann helped begin the Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN) as one of five principal investigators of the network and the first and current chair of the PECARN Steering Committee. PECARN is the first federally funded multi-institutional network for research in pediatric emergency medicine aimed at the prevention and management of acute illnesses and injuries in children and youth.

The Department of Emergency Medicine employs 35 emergency medicine physicians, 36 residents, more than 100 nurses, and more than 50 community volunteers. It is the premier provider of emergency care to the critically ill in the Sacramento Valley. It is the only level I-designated trauma center for inland Northern California.
