About the Program
The Ohio State University Emergency Medicine Research Fellowship is designed to prepare the fellow to become an independently funded investigator in a specific area of clinical emergency care research. The fellowship is a two-year program and includes completion of a Master of Public Health in clinical translational science, biostatistics or epidemiology. Fellows will work approximately two clinical shifts per week. The fellow will identify an area of focus and will complete several research projects, manuscripts and at least one grant application during the fellowship. Potential areas of focus include, but are not limited to geriatrics, infectious diseases, neurologic emergencies and EMS. In addition, there is a basic science option in resuscitation research for interested applicants. The goal will be to be prepared to submit for federal funding, ideally an NIH K grant, at the conclusion of the fellowship.
An Ohio medical license will be required before starting the fellowship. To start the application process, you must be a graduate from an emergency medicine residency program.
- A current CV with reference list
