Our Mission

Our mission is to Advance the Science and Practice of Emergency Medicine. In 2021, the department ranked first in the nation in research dollars awarded by the National Institutes of Health—a demonstration of our commitment to our mission, as we continue to push the envelope of science and advocate for our patients and communities.

EM research is an interdisciplinary field that addresses multiple subjects and medical specialties, ranging from acute critical care to improving public health. Our faculty are nationally recognized experts in their fields of study, dedicated to creating new knowledge and providing residents with exceptional opportunities to advance academic careers and individual research interests. Our work is supported by NIH, AHRQ, SAMHSA, CDC, EMF, and RWJF, among others. We encourage you to explore the spectrum of research content foci in our department.
