Emergency Medicine Research Fellowship

The UTHealth Department of Emergency Medicine sponsors a two-year fellowship in Emergency Medicine Research. The objective of the fellowship is to arm early stage investigators with foundation training and practical research experience necessary for long-term success as a clinician scientist.

Keep components of the research fellowship include:

  • Active participation in mentored clinical research projects.
  • Active participation in grant preparation and submission.
  • Completion of the Masters of Science in Clinical Research, or equivalent graduate degree
  • Composition and submission of scientific papers.
  • Participation in biomedical peer review.
  • Limited attending-level clinical duties.

Areas for potential focus include cardiopulmonary resuscitation, prehospital Emergency Medical Services, sepsis resuscitation and epidemiology, and clinical trials. Fellows are expected to write at least 2-4 first authored papers annually and to submit at least one major grant application. While the program is designed for individuals for an medical degree (MD or DO) and residency training in Emergency Medicine, opportunities may be available for motivated individuals with an MPH or PhD or for those from other medical specialties.

The EM research fellowship program is led by Henry E. Wang, MD, MS, Professor and Vice Chair for Research. Dr. Wang is one of the world’s most prolific EM scientists. Dr. Wang has vast experienced as a research mentor – his trainees have published papers in high impact journals such as the Annals of Emergency Medicine, Critical Care Medicine, Clinical Infectious Diseases, Lancet Infectious Diseases. Dr. Wang is also a Deputy Editor of the Annals of Emergency Medicine.
