Emergency Medicine

Resident Research

Research in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin is both nationally and locally funded. Our Research Director, E. Brooke Lerner, holds a PhD in Epidemiology and a is nationally recognized EMS researcher. We also have a Research Coordinator to assist with research related activities, and physician faculty who are leading national research projects specializing in injury, cardiac arrest, and EMS.

Each resident is expected to complete a scholarly activity research project prior to graduation and we have numerous resources to assist with this requirement.

The residency research project requirements include:

  • Oral presentation at the Department's Annual Research Forum
  • Develop a manuscript of publishable quality
  • The Research Director, Residency Program Director, and the resident's research mentor must approve the final manuscript
