Research Fellowship


The SAEM approved two-year fellowship program in Emergency Health Services Research with the Oregon Health & Science University Center for Policy and Research in Emergency Medicine (CPR-EM) combines health services research, didactic studies in research methods and biostatistics, and clinical emergency medicine. Fellows select research projects tailored to their individual interests within the broad range of health services research, with a focus on access to care, quality of care, or cost of care. Depending on interests and previous background, fellows will have the option of completing a Master of Public Health degree or a research certificate associated with the NIH-sponsored K-30 OHSU Human Investigations Program. Applicants who already hold a research credential may take other courses to expand on their research skills and content expertise.

Fellows will hold faculty appointments in the Oregon Health & Science University Department of Emergency Medicine. Full benefits, a competitive salary, travel funds, and tuition support are included. Candidates must be board-prepared or board-certified in emergency medicine. They should have a demonstrated interest in health services research and a commitment to a career in academic emergency medicine.

The Center for Policy and Research in Emergency Medicine (CPR-EM) at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) has a threefold mission:

  • to enhance the research activities of the Department of Emergency Medicine (DEM);
  • to partner with policy-makers, locally, state-wide and nationally, in identifying areas in which high-quality research can contribute to health policy issues;
  • to increase the contribution of DEM faculty to health policy issues facing our community, our state and our nation.

The CPR-EM’s intellectual resources include five core faculty members with diverse backgrounds in medicine, public health, epidemiology, economics, and biostatistics and with an established track record in health services research and grant writing. Research staff contribute skills in informatics, database management, primary data collection, project administration, and IRB issues.
