With 20 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.
This NIH-funded training program prepares early-career clinician-scientists for leadership roles and independent research careers in emergency critical care, focused on developing innovative approaches to severe, acute, life-threatening illness and injury in emergency settings.
Fellows training in research
Emergency Medicine junior faculty research group
- Each month, a group of junior 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 Rebecca Cunningham.
- Most clinical faculty in Emergency Medicine are engaged in various scholarly activities that are both professionally and personally rewarding. More than 80% of all EM faculty published a peer-reviewed product in 2015.
- 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.
- 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.
