The University of Michigan (U-M) Department of Emergency Medicine is committed to creating the future of emergency care through innovative research and creative scholarship.  As one of the most successful academic emergency medicine programs in the country, our research mission continues to flourish. For over a decade, our department has consistently been ranked among the top five Departments of Emergency Medicine in the US in NIH funding.

 The department cultivates research focused on preclinical, clinical, implementation and policy aspects of emergency medicine and critical care.  Our faculty, composed of research and clinical faculty, play an active role in directing the national research agenda related to the care of acutely ill and injured patients, injury prevention, and health 

The department has several Networks & Centers that aim to create the future of emergency care through research. The department also promotes research by providing pilot funds to ignite new research by trainees and faculty. Annual pilot funding opportunities include:

We have a number of Research Training programs and opportunities for trainees. We also provide research resources and enablers to all emergency medicine faculty and trainees to lower the energy barrier for grant applications. 

In April each year, the department holds an annual William G. Barsan Emergency Medicine Research Forum to showcase ongoing research activities and accomplishments.
