Research Training

With over 25 years of experience in developing students, residents, and faculty for careers in emergency research, U-M’s Emergency Department provides solid support for cultivating productive, funded researchers.  Training opportunities range from summer projects for first-year medical students to long-term career development, including extramural training grants and first independent research funding.

T32 Training Program in Firearm Safety Among Children and Teens (FACTS)Our department faculty lead a T32 program that addresses the critical need to develop a scientific workforce that can capitalize on the recent expansion of federal research funding for firearms prevention. This is the nation’s first T32 program dedicated exclusively to providing post-doctoral research training on preventing firearm injuries among children and teens.

Emergency Medicine Early Career Research Huddle

  • Each month, a group of early career Emergency Medicine research faculty meets to share and test ideas, develop collaborations, share key learnings, and receive additional training and insights to develop their research interests.  For more information about the group, contact Fred Korley MD, PhD.

Clinical Faculty

  • Most clinical faculty in Emergency Medicine are engaged in various scholarly activities that are both professionally and personally rewarding.
  • To support clinical faculty in producing scholarly works, the department has formed a Clinical Faculty Scholarly Activities Committee, which offers ongoing activities and services designed to encourage publishing and other scholarly output.

Committee goal:  Provide guidance and support for scholarly projects and output with mentorship, resources, and constructive support.

Committee members: 

Ron Maio
William Meurer
Phillip Scott

Committee activities:

  • Quarterly meetings open to clinical faculty to discuss ideas, request support in developing collaborations, and receive mentorship.  Discussions may include overcoming barriers, solidifying concepts, and/or identifying needed support and resources (including IRB application assistance, statistical support, and more).
  • Individual meetings may take place to allow for individualized mentorship on specific challenges or projects.
