EMRA Fellowship Guide
Chapter 21 Research Fellowship
Emergency medicine research fellowships are a non-ACGME-accredited post-graduate training opportunity for emergency medicine (EM) residency graduates interested in pursuing a career in basic and clinical research. The Society for Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM) has approved a subset of eligible research fellowships that have met a number of milestones based on predetermined guidelines. Fellows who complete a research fellowship at a SAEM-approved site receive a certificate of approval upon completion. Emergency medicine is a dynamic specialty that relies heavily on evidence-based medicine to guide everyday practice. EM is an ideal specialty for studying acute emergencies with a broad mix of patients and conditions. The proportion of academic faculty involved in research and the proportion of studies published in emergency medicine journals that have research funding has been climbing (Karras, 2006 and Birkhahn 2006). Emergency medicine research is growing quickly, and fellowship training has been one successful pathway to increase EM research success.
This handbook is the result of over two years of discussion within the EMRA Research Committee about how to assist emergency medicine residents and medical students who are just getting started in research. The scholarly project that all emergency medicine residents are obligated to complete during residency is an opportunity to get your feet wet in research, discover answers to clinical questions you may encounter in your practice, and maybe even find meaningful mentorship that will outlast residency
