The Emergency Medicine Program at the University of Maryland provides specific opportunities for resident research education from the intern to the senior year.
Our faculty includes many members who have not only have extensive research experience and funding, but are also genuinely thrilled to mentor residents and students in their research endeavors. From bench, to translational, to clinical, there are constantly multiple projects in process. Our residents are also encouraged to develop their own research projects, and have faculty mentors to assist.
Annual Resident Research Day
In June of each year, we devote a full lecture day to research presentations by residents. Held in Davidge Hall, the program includes a grand rounds lecture from a visiting national expert in emergency medicine research, followed by resident research presentations. Past visiting faculty include Drs. Jeff Kline, Barbra Backus, Megan Ranney, and Ali Raja.
Clinical Research Fellowship
University of Maryland has an Emergency Medicine Clinical Research Fellowship for physicians who have completed residency. The fellowship combines a part-time clinical experience in an affiliated hospital with research education through the Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine. A master’s degree in clinical research is available.
