Emergency Medicine

The Duke Division of Emergency Medicine provides high-quality, timely, and compassionate emergency care for patients, ample clinical experience and unsurpassed educational opportunities for residents and fellows, and cutting-edge research that, when combined, consistently improves patient care.


Timely and Compassionate Emergency Care

Duke’s Emergency Department serves as a tertiary care center and Level 1 Trauma Center to patients in North Carolina and surrounding states. We have provided care to patients since 1945 and, with a new state-of-the-art and expanded facility that opened in April 2007, the ED is now equipped to treat over 90,000 patients a year.
