Recruitment begins for emergency medicine career development program

The OHSU Department of Emergency Medicine was recently selected as one of three sites for the new national K12 Training Program in Emergency Care Research. The purpose of this award is to promote multidisciplinary clinical research training programs in emergency care that prepare clinician-scientists for independent research careers and academic leadership roles.

The program runs for five years and supports five scholar’s comprehensive research training to evaluate innovative approaches in the diagnosis and clinical management of patients with acute, life-threatening manifestations of cardiovascular, pulmonary, hematologic, traumatic, and mental health emergencies. The scholar recruitment process will begin this fall with the first two scholars starting July 2017.
