Welcome the Emergency Research Fellowship

Emergency Care is a specialty that requires excellent training and education. The program at Maimonides provides a unique educational opportunity to assure our graduates are highly qualified and extremely competent physicians. We achieve this goal by offering a diversified curriculum, both clinically and educationally. It is the acuity of our patients, the support of our surrounding communities, and the dedication of our faculty that distinguish us from other programs.

The Division of Research at Maimonides Medical Center is dedicated to the science and understanding of emergency, acute care, and critical care medicine with a particular emphasis on health services and outcomes.

The 1-year Emergency Research Fellowship program is open to all residents

The focus of our research initiatives includes:

  • Biomedical/clinical
  • Emergency department operations
  • Emergency medicine education
  • Pre-hospital/emergency medical services
  • Trauma/injury

The division’s original research work has been presented at major national and international scientific and clinical forums and published in premier scientific journals

The Emergency Research Fellowship Program

The Emergency Research Fellowship experience

Faculty and residents are actively encouraged to participate in scholarly and academic activities and to develop their research projects with the goal of presentation and publication. Each resident also presents his/her scholarly activity at the Department of Emergency Medicine’s Research Day, held every June. The research team consists of more than 30 trained volunteer research assistants that facilitate patient recruitment and data collection. A multidisciplinary research meeting is held every month to discuss and develop all active projects, provide research education for the Department, and share our collaborative projects with our colleagues at Maimonides.

Here is a list of research projects happening now:

  • A Needs Assessment Survey for the use of Interactive Web Seminar Technology to Develop International Emergency Medicine
