Research: SAEM Approved
Being able to perform transformative research in emergency medicine requires rigorous training. At the end of residency education, however, most emergency medicine physicians who wish to become independent scientists are unprepared to do so. The University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW) Emergency Medicine Research Fellowship Program is structured to use extensive institutional and departmental resources to develop trainees into independent, high quality researchers. The 2-year Program seeks individuals who have an ultimate career goal of conducting externally-funded clinical or health services research. Through didactic and experiential learning, combined with focused mentorship, the fellows will develop and refine the critical knowledge, skills, and attitudes required to achieve the fellowship goals. At the end of the Program, each fellow will be well prepared to obtain an NIH or AHRQ Career Development Award (e.g., KL2, K12, K08, K23).
The Emergency Medicine Research Fellowship Program has been constructed to provide the highest quality career development and research training. The combination of the environment and the training supports the development of physician-scientist leaders. The Program is structured over 2 years. An optional third year is available if desired. The Program provides progressively increasing responsibility towards research independence. The central core of the Program is the Master of Science in Clinical Investigation degree provided through the NIH-funded Institute for Clinical and Translational Research. An additional potential opportunity for the fellow is an institutional post-doctoral fellowship available to faculty members. Through didactic experiences, practical experiences, skills-based learning, and advanced mentorship techniques, the trainee will develop increasing expertise in the core research competencies.
