Seeking scholars for K12 emergency medicine clinical research program

OHSU is recruiting faculty-level scholars for a two-to-three-year multidisciplinary training program in emergency medicine clinical research. The Oregon Emergency Medicine K12 is a multidisciplinary clinical research program that aims to produce highly qualified emergency medicine researchers with expertise in research fundamentals and the skills required for success as academic clinicians and leaders. By the end of the training period, each scholar will be well-prepared to serve as an independent clinical researcher.

Scholar Benefits

Scholars will have 75 percent protected time for up to three years to develop their research careers. Training will include a didactic program leading to a Masters of Clinical Research (scholars who already have an equivalent degree will work with their mentor team to develop an individualized course of study); a mentored research experience including designing and conducting research studies, preparing manuscripts, and grant writing; and a tailored professional faculty development experience. Financial support includes partial salary support, plus up to $55,000 per year for tuition and research expenses.


  • Scholars should be at the level of assistant professor or higher.
  • Be physicians or clinicians with a doctoral degree such as PharmD, DNP, etc. with a demonstrated interest in emergency medicine research.
