Have you ever wondered what it’s like being an emergency medicine physician and how the team works to address some of the nation’s most pressing health care challenges?
To find out more, consider listening and subscribing to EM Pulse, a new podcast series launched by UC Davis emergency medicine physicians.
Each episode of the budding series focuses on a specific aspect of delivering care to patients and the opportunities UC Davis physicians find to improve health and health care in the Sacramento region and beyond. It also provides resources for practicing physicians.

science, who shares some advice on how to approach these patients,
create a safe space, and offer support and resources.
