An essential element in establishing the credibility of any medical specialty is the scholarly activity it engenders, particularly in the form of high-quality laboratory and clinical research. Situated on the campus of a highly respected research university, the residency offers trainees exceptional opportunities to pursue research activities by providing access to animal facilities, surgical research laboratories, and faculty expertise at the School of Medicine. Each resident is required to conduct research or scholarly work that can be shared with the emergency medicine community in publishable form. Journal Clubs and didactic sessions provide a firm grounding in research methodology and statistics. Many residents have had the opportunity to present their research and papers at national meetings.
