Medical Crisis Decision Team

How are Emergency decisions made?

During an emergency the Medical Crisis Decision Team (CDT) is responsible for centralized coordination of protective actions and operational changes. The Medical CDT is composed of the senior-most leadership within major campus units and other field-specific experts who are requested to join a case-by-case basis.
