Resident and Student EM Research

Emergency Medicine Faculty work with students across disciplines including from the school of medicine, public health, engineering, and nursing. 

Opportunities to work on projects with research faculty.

Emergency Medicine Residents

  • Emergency Medicine and other residents along with residents from other fields are frequently engaged in emergency medicine research. 

Medical students

  • Medical Students have the opportunity to work with recognized leaders in emergency medicine.  Work routinely includes projects in the laboratory, at the bedside, and carrying out research on the operational performance of the emergency department. 
  • Summer electives for first year medical students.  Spend eight weeks working with an emergency medicine faculty between first and second year. 


Resident Research in the Spotlight

As part of an ongoing program to showcase our resident’s important research contributions, we regularly choose a new scholarly contribution to discuss in this space.

Wow time really flies when you are having so much fun doing research, so an update is well overdue.  As we renew the resident research spotlight we are going to catch up a little by showcasing two papers from our amazing critical care researchers.  The first paper includes several of our residents: Drs. Patrick Larabell, William Schaeffer, and Victoria Hoch who published their article "Descriptive Analysis of Extubations Performed in an Emergency Department-based Intensive Care Unit" in the Western Journal of Emergency Medicine.  The second entry includes Dr. Ryan Tsuchida  and is entitled "An Emergency Department–Based Intensive Care Unit is Associated with Decreased Hospital and Intensive Care Unit Utilization for Diabetic Ketoacidosis" featured in JEM. 

Congratulations to everyone and keep up the great scholarship!
