The goal of research at the University of Florida College of Medicine - Jacksonville’s Department of Emergency Medicine is to advance the field of emergency medicine, improve patient care and provide the educational basis for sound scientific inquiry for residents, fellows and faculty. To achieve this goal, an infrastructure of staff, funding, resources, and curricula have been developed.

The Department of Emergency Medicine Division of Emergency Medicine Research has received awards for research and educational endeavors from the National Institutes of Health, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, Department of Defense, private foundations and the university. Faculty and staff possess expertise in grant writing and have served as a site for clinical trial completion.

The Division of Emergency Medicine Research has a unique relationship with area colleges to accommodate undergraduate and graduate students who are required to complete internship training hours. Our Division of Emergency Medicine Research accepts one to four students a semester from the University of North Florida, Brooks College of Health in the areas of nursing, community health science and public health. These students are trained in human subject research and serve as research assistants and volunteers in the Emergency Department. As part of their internship, they attend lectures, trainings, literature reviews and learn about the campus’ institutional review board and the Western Institutional Review Board.

The Division of Emergency Medicine Research is currently strengthening its formal curricula in research to meet the needs of faculty, fellows, and residents. In addition to program specific education, the UF College of Medicine-Jacksonville offers various other resources, including PhD biostatistician, courses on statistics, a faculty development series, and a biomedical research lab. Many departments work collaboratively to pool resources and complete ground breaking research.
