UW Health Med Flight is a critical care transport organization that performs around 2,000 transports annually. We are integrated into the Emergency Medicine residency program and have a fellowship program. As part of our continued dedication to quality care we have quarterly Morbidity and Mortality Conferences where we review cases, have discussions, and learn together.
