Faculty & Research
The Department of Emergency Medicine hosts approximately 40 faculty that are dedicated to mentorship and the personal and professional growth of their residents. One of the cornerstones of our program is the administrative and academic expertise of our faculty. Practice styles vary with each faculty member which reflects their training from around the country. Each resident, as they work with a faculty member, will learn something new and potentially different, allowing the resident to choose the practice style of emergency medicine that resonates best with themselves.
Clinical evidence provided through research enables us to discover better ways to care for our patients. To stimulate an appreciation of the research process among our residents, they are required to complete a research project under faculty mentorship prior to graduation.
The steps to develop and complete your project include:
- PGY-1 year, choose a general area of interest and find a faculty advisor for the project
- Present a research proposal at an Emergency Department Research Conference
- With guidance from an advisor, develop and present a written proposal to the Emergency Medicine Research Committee (EMRC) and the Research Subjects Review Board (RSRB)
- Collect and analyze the data
- Prepare a slide presentation
- At the end of PGY-3, formally present the project at the Annual Emergency Medicine Residency Research Conference.
All residents are encouraged to submit their research for publication in a peer-reviewed journal and present the work at national conferences.
