Teresita M. Hogan, MD, FACEP

Teresita Hogan

Dr. Hogan is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Chicago Medicine. She is the founding director of the Resurrection Medical Center Emergency Medicine Residency Program, establishing the program in 1994 and directing it through 2005.

Due to her work in Geriatrics, Dr. Hogan was appointed the American College of Emergency Physicians’ representative to the American Geriatric Society in 1999. Dr. Hogan’s research interests include the care of older patients in the emergency department. She also represents the American College of Emergency Physicians on the John A. Hartford Foundation/AGS Interdisciplinary Leadership Group for the project entitled “Increasing Geriatrics Expertise in Surgical and Related Medical Specialties.” She is the Emergency Medicine Representative to the American Medical Association’s Impact of Aging Healthcare Initiative.

Her Brookdale Leadership in Aging Fellowship will focus on establishing Geriatric Competencies for Emergency Medicine Residents. The ultimate goal is to establish certification for emergency departments in geriatric care. This certification will require continuing medical education in geriatric education for emergency physicians annually and will mandate institution of special policies, procedures, and equipment for the emergency care of elders. This effort seeks to establish minimum standards that will improve the emergency care of older adult patients in our nation’s emergency departments.
