Training Program Aims and Objectives

EMERGE provides a highly focused formalized training experience in emergency care science for Emergency Care Scholars. The specific aims are to:

  • provide in-depth knowledge and formalized training leading to a Master of Science in Clinical Epidemiology degree or more advanced training for those who have received formal clinical research training previously;
  • provide intensive, supervised research experiences with mentoring teams consisting of methodologists, emergency care preceptors, and biostatisticians; including the completion of an emergency care clinical research project;
  • launch Emergency Care Scholars on a productive clinical research career by assisting them in their transition to independence; and
  • unite faculty and Emergency Care Scholars through participation in collaborative research, seminar series, and workshops offered through EMERGE, the Emergency Medicine Department, the Pediatrics’ Division of Emergency Medicine, and the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics.

The training program objectives are to generate:

  • a new cadre of skilled independent investigators trained to conduct emergency care research and develop academic careers as independent researchers; and
  • new national leaders in emergency care research who can advance scientific knowledge, public policy, develop priorities within the field, and act as spokespersons on the national and international level for emergency care science.
