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.

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.

Please congratulate Drs. Brendan Munzer and Robert Furlong on their article in the Western Journal of Medicine “An Analysis of the Top-cited Articles in Emergency Medicine Education Literature.”  Dr. Munzer just completed his residency training at U-M and is continuing on this year as the inaugural Medical Education Fellow.  Dr. Furlong is in his final year of training and is an active contributor in our medical education simulation-based research.  Way to go guys.
