Research in Emergency Medicine

The Department of Emergency Medicine has a long history of innovative clinical and translational research. Areas of focus include sepsis, neurological emergencies, shock and resuscitation, cardiovascular emergencies, and diagnostic biomarkers.

Researchers are active investigators in federally funded projects and participate in NIH-funded consortiums including the SIREN, StrokeNet and PETAL Networks. The DEM research team includes more than 25 dedicated research team members, including research faculty, program managers, coordinators, research associates, grant management support, and data analyst.

Resident projects

Although not required in the three-year program, research is encouraged and supported. Our residents can take the research elective, or the research track during the PGY3 year. Each resident has access to a $5,000 grant during residency for research through our DEM Small Grants Research Fund. There is also full biostatistical support. Many of our residents participate in projects during their residency. In the past 5 years, residents have authored over 30 publications and have participated in over 50 abstracts and presentations (oral and poster). HFH supports resident travel for these presentations.
