Research and collaboration in the department

Research within the Department of Emergency Medicine is a core mission of our department. The research mission overlaps and supports the other department missions of patient care, education and faculty development. The research mission engages faculty, fellows, residents, students and research staff.

The Department of Emergency Medicine has a long history of both intra- and inter-institutional collaboration. With over 120,000 patient visits per year between our two clinical sites, we have a large and diverse patient population. We are constantly seeking opportunities to expand our research mission and actively seek out additional potential collaborators both within and outside of our institution. Clinical research studies conducted within the emergency department at Ohio State are expected to have emergency medicine faculty input and involvement. We encourage potential collaborators to contact us early in their study design to ensure effective collaboration.

Get Involved

The future of research in the Department of Emergency Medicine is bright. We are strongly committed to growing this mission over the coming years in conjunction with the College of Medicine’s goal to increase our research standing. Both our laboratory and clinical research programs currently receive NIH funding, which we anticipate will continue to grow. As our research mission grows, we are anxious to recruit additional research core faculty and provide research training opportunities to our students, residents and fellows.

There are always opportunities for faculty, residents and students to engage in non-funded clinical research projects to address interesting clinical questions which frequently arise in the practice of emergency medicine. These projects frequently serve to help residents meet their graduation scholarly project requirement. For assistance in these projects please contact Dr. Caterino to coordinate support efforts.
