Dr. Ellen Weber specializes in emergency medicine.

Weber's research focuses on the emergency department's role in the larger health care system. She studies ways to improve patient care in the emergency department, including streamlining the flow of visits and reducing unnecessary testing.

With an interest in expanding her specialty in other countries, Weber served as visiting faculty to support the development of Tanzania's first residency program in emergency medicine, at Muhimbili National Hospital in 2013. She has returned twice each year since then to mentor emergency medicine residents and junior faculty members conducting research in the field.

Weber lives in Marin County with her husband and yellow lab. When not working, she enjoys hiking, reading (especially mysteries) and cryptic crossword puzzles.
