In 2018, the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine welcomed the most women in the school’s 199-year history. That same year, the Department of Emergency Medicine created the UC Emergency Medicine Program Of Women in Leadership (UC EMPOWER) to aggressively promote the advancement of women in emergency medicine and produce leaders in the field. With relentless intention, conscious inclusion and cultural vigilance, UC EMPOWER is determined to succeed and affect change. The difference we make today will forever affect our department culture and the future of emergency medicine.

The University of Cincinnati established the first emergency medicine residency in the country, and through UC EMPOWER, we can continue to lead the way. When you know what is right—you must act on it. Join the UC Department of Emergency Medicine to empower female residents and faculty!
