Biography

Research

Courtney received her PhD in epidemiology from the University of Rochester in 2014 and is currently completing a research trainee fellowship from the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine. She is an injury epidemiologist with extensive experience with subject recruitment in emergent care settings, including the emergency department. Courtney's research portfolio centers around risk stratification of injured patients to identify patients who would benefit from trauma center services. Specifically, her research foci include: 1) clinical outcomes of traumatically injured patients, with particular emphasis on how issues of aging, such as medical co-morbidities, high-risk medication use, and resiliency influence short-and long-term patient outcomes; 2) the pre-hospital care of injured patients, including the evaluation and development of field triage criteria; and 3) decision-making processes used in the pre-hospital setting by emergency medical services providers.
