The purpose of the Center for Policy and Research in Emergency Medicine (CPR-EM) Fellowship Program is to
train physician-researchers who will become leaders in emergency medicine research. This will be achieved by:
Working with each fellow to develop a program that addresses her or his professional goals in academic
emergency medicine, with a strong focus on research – be it basic science research, clinical research,
or health services research;
Providing training in research through a combination of didactic study and
intensive individual mentorship in research methods;
Providing experience in study design, statistical analysis, project management, and grant writing; and
Integrating the fellows into the activities of an academic department of emergency medicine in order to
provide understanding of the career track of an academic emergency physician.

Upon completion of the research fellowship, the fellows will be able to:
- Design, conduct, and manage an independent research project;
- Successfully compete for extramural research funding;
- Integrate knowledge of clinical emergency medicine with health services and epidemiologic research methods;
- Serve as a clinician-educator in an academic emergency department.
