Stanford University Hospital/Kaiser-Permanente
Sarah R. Williams, MD, FACEP is the Program Director for the Emergency Medicine Residency and oversees the educational curriculum for the residents. She has been on faculty at Stanford since 2000 and has the rank of Clinical Associate Professor. Sarah went to Cal as an undergrad (Go Bears!) and then started drinking the Stanford cool-aid, going to medical school here, the EM residency from 1997-2000, and the chief residency in 2000-2001. During 2000-2001 Sarah also developed version 1 of the EM Ultrasound Fellowship and was its inaugural fellow, and then went on to become the founding director of the EM Ultrasound Program at Stanford.
Dr. Williams also has a strong interest in medical education and leadership, and has been working hard with the residency program since 2000. She has worn all of the "hats" of residency leadership: Chief Resident, Assistant Program Director (APD), Associate PD, and now Program Director. Sarah has also been active in helping coordinate and run several CME programs, including our national conference and developing a new series of interdisciplinary ultrasound CME courses. Sarah has both practical real-world experience in education as well as completing the ACEP Teaching Fellowship and is currently completing a Masters Program in Health Professions Education (while continuing to work at Stanford full-time). She also co-runs the multidisciplinary Stanford Clinical Teaching Scholars Program. She is active in SAEM and teaches at the SAEM annual Med Ed Bootcamp, and in CORD, chairing the Task Force on Transitions of Care.
Sarah's areas of expertise are medical education, leadership in emergency medicine, and emergency ultrasound. Sarah also understands the challenges of combining an active academic career with family; she is a wife and mom of three school-aged boys. She was also the first member of her family to go to college and gets how hard the system can be... Sarah is happy to collaborate with colleagues with anything related to any of the above interests.
