Adult Emergency Department
The large state-of-the-art trauma bays support the role of UMMC as the state’s only Level 1 Trauma Center. UMMC is a key component of the Central Mississippi Emergency Medical Services District, and serves as the resource hospital and medical hub of EMS activity. As a Level 1 Tertiary Center, UMMC provides a critical care helicopter transport service that is based out of the Emergency Department. Residents get hands-on experience with helicopter dispatch as well as actual flight experience. An additional elective rotation has been designed for concentrated aeromedical exposure for interested residents.
