Initiating Publishable Research in a Low Resource Environment

In every nation worldwide, emergency medicine is the youngest specialty. Faculty seeking promotions are obligated to publish, despite the fact that access to accomplished research mentors in EM is difficult. Furthermore, research has become increasingly competitive and funding is harder and harder to obtain.
In this course, professors who have successfully designed and published research will guide you through the process of performing unfunded research from defining a testable research hypothesis, choosing a study design, designing a study instrument, implementing an approved study, analyzing data to interpret conclusions, and writing an abstract for presentation at a national meeting.
Each participant will leave the course with a study and a data extrapolation instrument designed, and will have a timeline for completion of the study with virtual mentorship from the course professors so that each participant will have an abstract completed for submission to a congress for 2016. Motivated students will be guided by the professors through the completion of a manuscript for publication.
