||Emergency Medicine Research Fellowship
A two-year Emergency Medicine Research Fellowship is designed for emergency medicine residents interested in a career in academic emergency medicine. This is a well-established fellowship, which has graduated a number of fellows. The fellowship includes a Masters of Medical Science degree program which includes a total of 45 hours of graduate work including courses in biostatistics, research design, research methodology, as well as electives appropriate to the fellow,s research interests. A thesis is developed from the fellow's research efforts. A Ph.D. option is also available and has been successfully completed by one previously fellow. Currently (2003) we have two fellows enrolled in the Biophysics Graduate Program seeking Ph.D. degrees.
Fellows have the opportunity to work with a well-funded, multi-disciplinary, laboratory based cardiovascular oriented research team. Principle areas of research include cardiac ischemia, reperfusion and post ischemic left ventricular function. Established investigators both within and without the Department of Emergency Medicine provide mentorship. Clinical duties are limited to approximately 48 hours per week working as an Emergency Medicine attending in the hospital emergency department. We have been successful in attaining training grants for our fellows from the Emergency Medicine Foundation, SAEM and the NIH.
