ResearchThe Yale University School of Medicine is an academic environment with vast resources for both basic science and clinical research. Virtually any EMS research interest can be accommodated either directly through Section of EMS faculty or through collaboration with other university programs. Of particular relevance to clinical EMS fellows are the School of Public Health with its expertise and degree programs in Epidemiology and Biostatistics, the Telemedicine and Remote Monitoring Program in the Department of Surgery, the Multi-Disciplinary Biomedical Engineering Program, and the School of Organization and Management. Through Dr. Sandy Bogucki’s fire research program, fellows will also have access to a number of extramural research venues. For example, a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) has been executed between the Department of Emergency Medicine and the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine to study the physiology of structural firefighting while wearing SCBA and full personal protective equipment. Other participants in the fire research program consortium include the Fire Research Labs at the National Institute for Standards and Technology, the US Fire Administration, and the Oak Ridge and Sandia National Laboratories.
