As Bob Norris, MD, attended to victims of last year's devastating earthquake in Haiti, he was vexed by a question: What if he and his team had been able to get there even a day or two earlier?

"The more quickly injured people receive care, the more likely they are to survive," said Norris, chief of Emergency Medicine at Stanford Hospital & Clinics.

Thus was born the Stanford Emergency Medicine Program for Emergency Response. Its acronym, SEMPER, is Latin for "always." The group serves several functions. Foremost is to quickly provide emergency medicine to acutely and severely injured victims of a disaster. To this end, the program holds regular classes in disaster medicine for its members. It also plans to conduct research into the practice of medicine in disaster situations.
