The Department of Emergency Medicine has an active, collaborative research program with numerous opportunities for clinical, epidemiologic, translational, and bench research projects. Our department is dedicated to improving emergency care through research. We have robust federally funded research activities and our faculty is published extensively. Our Department hosts two NIH and CDC funded research centers including the Resuscitation Research Center and the Injury Research Center and is engaged in several federally funded multi-center studies.
We provide research training for medical students, residents and faculty. Research mentors are available to assist students and residents as well as outside community groups interested in emergency care and public and community health projects. The Department hosts an annual Emergency Medicine Research Forum, co-sponsored with the Section of Pediatric Emergency Medicine, which highlights faculty, fellow, and resident scholarly activity projects in addition to showcasing the work of local and regional emergency medicine researchers.
As our research program grows, we have numerous opportunities for those interested in emergency medicine research. A number of opportunities are highlighted on this site, but if you would like additional information please contact us.

The overall goal of this project is to develop an EMS Research Node Center (E-RNC) integrated with the Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN) that will conduct innovative and significant prehospital-based pediatric research.
The Circulation Improving Resuscitation Care trial is an international, multi-center trial, that has been designed to compare the effectiveness of AutoPulse-CPR, within an integrated resuscitation protocol, to conventional Manual-CPR for the treatment of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest of presumed cardiac etiology.
Under a grant from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, five collaborators investigated how to determine the community cost for an Emergency Medical Services (EMS) system.
Mechanism-of-injury component of the Criteria were evaluated to determine which conditions are predictive of trauma center need.
The Injury Research Center (IRC) at the Medical College was established as a comprehensive federally funded injury control research center to address the burden of injury in the Great Lakes Region of the Midwest (WI, MN, IL, IN, MI and OH). The IRC brings together researchers, practitioners, advocates, organizations, and agencies to prevent, treat, and care for injuries.

The MCW Emergency Medicine Department offers resident research resources, EMS research, injury research, Cardiac arrest research, and Resident Scholarly Activity.
The emergency medicine research forum is a one-day regional meeting that takes place every spring. A visiting professor presents on a current topic in Emergency Medicine. Faculty, Residents, and Medical Students showcase their original adult and pediatric research. The Forum is intended for emergency medicine faculty, fellows, residents, medical students, nurses, other health care professionals, and researchers.
The Emergency Medicine department at the Medical College of Wisconsin is involved in resuscitation and neurological emergency research by partnering with government and private agencies to provide 24/7/365 research coordinator coverage.
