Department of Emergency Medicine Research Day

Our 6th Annual ED Research Day will take place on Wednesday March 14, in Smilow Atrium and Rubenstein Auditorium. This event is open to the public. We're looking forward to seeing you!

EM Research Day is a terrific opportunity for the entire department to come together and learn about each other’s scholarly activity. Last year, we had 34 poster presenters, 5 presenters who faced the EM “Shark Tank” panelists, and 7 oral presentations from a diverse group (nurses, residents, faculty, and fellows from PPMC, PAH, CHOP, and HUP - the whole spectrum of who we are as a department), and feedback about the event was outstanding.

This year, our guest of honor & keynote speaker will be Jesse Pines, MD, MBA, MSCE, an accomplished EM physician, scholar and mentor at George Washington University.
