Welcome Dr. Jim Miner, New Head of Emergency Medicine

I am pleased to announce that Dr. Jim Miner has accepted the role of Department Head for Emergency Medicine.

Jim currently serves as the Chief of Emergency Medicine at HCMC where he has worked since 1996. He also serves as the Research Director of the Department of Emergency medicine. He has done extensive research in acute pain management, monitoring during resuscitation, and healthcare delivery. He is also the Senior Editor for Electronic Publications for Academic Emergency Medicine and is the author of a textbook entitled, “Emergency Sedation and Pain Management.” He is a part of the American College of Emergency Physicians, Society of Emergency Medicine, and the American Pain Society. Additionally, he has served as a Professor of Emergency Medicine here at the U and on the Promotions and Tenure committee for many years.

I am grateful to Dr. Michelle Biros for her leadership of the Department of Emergency Medicine since 2014. Dr. Biros has been a valuable asset to our team during her time here, and although transitioning out of her role as Head, will continue to perform research work in emergency medicine, as well as being an advisor on Vulnerable Populations and Human Trafficking.

Our department will continue to partner with our affiliate sites to educate medical students and promote scholarship in Emergency Medicine. Expanding our impact in the field of emergency medicine is an important priority for this Medical School, and we are grateful for all our partners in this effort.

Please take the time to congratulate Dr. Miner and to thank Dr. Biros for her service.
