DEATH TEACHES LIFE
"Mortui vivos docent. The dead teach the living.
We know each one who has made the ultimate gift and given their body to science. We respect them, we honor them, we talk to them because the dead do teach the living. They are the ultimate faculty member."
PASSION BREEDS CREATIVITY
"It begins intrinsically with an individual recognizing they can make the biggest difference. Whether it's a fire fighter, paramedic, doctor or combat medic they come here for a human to human experience.
We have combat medics who write us and tell us that what they did in our lab has made a difference for them out in the field and has allowed another soldier to come home and spend more time with their family."
ALLEVIATE SUFFERING, EXTEND LIFE, PREVENT UNTIMELY DEATH
"Our goal is very simple to prevent unnecessary suffering and untimely death and the only way we can do that is to look at the way we are taking care of patients.
We are here because emergency medicine dynamically needs to change and we are here to ensure that change begins."
EXPERIENCE THE FUTURE WITH US
"The impact to emergency medicine is somebody walking out of the hospital surviving something they otherwise wouldn’t have because of the work we’ve done. We can prove that. We have demonstrable quantifiable evidence that what we do makes a difference. In orthopedics it’s about someone with one less limp. One more person returning to running a marathon. We do this in recon, we do this in trauma in anesthesiology and neurosurgery…one less bit of numbness, one more return to function."
