Welcome to the fellowship in emergency medicine and acute care research in the department of emergency medicine at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville. The primary goal of this one- or two-year fellowship is to provide clinicians with the skills needed to become successful physician-scientists, who can design and implement high quality clinical and translational research studies leading to independent research careers. The fellowship includes hands-on practical research experience, as well as a complementary didactic component. The didactic component focuses on the following key skills to advance research and training:
- Epidemiology and study design
- Applied biostatics
- Grant and manuscript writing
- Ethics of clinical research
Each fellow is assigned a faculty member, who serves as primary research mentor to guide career development, research education and research projects. Mentors will also facilitate dissemination of research projects to national conferences and peer-reviewed publications. The didactic component may be tailored to each fellow’s previous education and research training to provide a well-rounded and individualized educational experience.
Thank you for your interest. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions you may have.
