Following years of work, it's official. Effective June 23, 2016, the emergency medicine department at the University of Saskatchewan was granted full academic department status.

Congratulations to all whose efforts have made this possible, including our TREKK partners Dr. James Stempien (TREKK site rep) and Dr. Brent Thoma (CanadiEM partnership).
