Emergency Medicine Scholarly Activity

From the Research Director

All residents are required a scholarly project during residency.  The type of scholarly project will be decided by the resident in conjunction with the program director.


Here at Baystate Medical Center, we perform primarily clinical research in areas related to emergency medicine. While our emphasis is on departmental initiated projects, we also participate in several multicenter groups. Residents are taught methodology and statistics to efficiently evaluate current literature and the basis for our current standards of care. Participation in research projects during the residency is encouraged, although, not required.


Research programs are available for undergraduate and medical students as an elective or on a volunteer basis. Students also have the opportunity to spend time with our clinical faculty in the ED. Inquiries should be forwarded to Del Blank, Department of Emergency Medicine Research Coordinator at: del.blank@baystatehealth.org.
