Residents in the EM program participate in an academic project during their training. A wide array of options is available for residents to pursue, including clinical research. Residents are not expected to be proficient researchers upon entering
the program. A cadre of expert researchers and mentors are available, including EM faculty members receiving NIH funding, serving on the institution’s IRB, and reviewing for highly-ranked journals. In addition, a staff statistician is available
for both research planning and statistical analysis. Residents have access to EMRAP, a program that assists in enrolling subjects for clinical research in the Emergency Department.
