On behalf of the University of Pennsylvania’s Medical Emergency Response Team, I would like to welcome you to our homepage. As a student-run organization, we value our commitment to the University Community as emergency service providers. We maintain this commitment via extensive training, collaboration with other EMS/Police organizations, and continued dedication to delivering the highest quality care. Here, you will be able to explore photos and videos of our members in action, some of the training that we offer the university community, and ways that you can get involved with our organization. We encourage you to contact us should you have any concerns or inquiries.

Best wishes,
Sara Jones
Chief, University of Pennsylvania Medical Emergency Response Team
