Course Overview

What is EMBRS?

Are you interested in increasing and improving research in emergency medicine?

As a national emergency medicine organization, we understand the importance of increasing and improving research in our specialty. EMBRS does this by encouraging and mentoring young researchers, fostering and supporting research projects that contribute to improvements in patient care, and by developing and increasing the number of emergency medicine researchers.

The EMBRS workshop is specifically designed to help you hone and improve your research skills or program. This is a great course for young faculty, those interested in improving their skills as a researcher, and physicians who are involved in research as part of their duties. Participants are also eligible to receive an EMF/EMBRS grant based on their research grant application.
