Research

Our PEM Fellows are supported by a robust team through the Department of Research and Sponsored Programs. Additionally, our fellows attend the Emergency Medicine Basic Research Skills course at the American College of Emergency Physicians.

Research Team

PEM Fellows work closely with PhD’s (statistical support), clinical research coordinators (IRB and grant support), and research assistants (we employ a number of RAs for prospective data collection). A number of PEM faculty are dedicated as academic faculty. We have numerous ongoing projects in our department and there are ample opportunities for our fellows to pursue their clinical interests.
