Emergency Medicine Foundation/EMRA Critical Care Resident Research Grant
Deadline for receipt of application - January 10, 2014
The Emergency Medicine Foundation awards funds to support the development of research in emergency medicine. The goals of the EMF/EMRA Critical Care Resident Research Program are: 1) to promote research within the specialties of emergency medicine and critical care, 2) to advance care for the critically ill in the emergency department and beyond, and 3) to facilitate the academic growth and development of future researchers and leaders in emergency medicine-critical care and thereby invest in the future of the growing specialty of emergency medicine-critical care.
The EMF/EMRA Critical Care Resident Research Grant attempts to maximize the applicant's educational experience in research while producing the best science. The educational agenda is best accomplished in an organized program of instruction on research methods in addition to the completion of the project itself.
A maximum of $5,000 will be awarded for each approved grant application. Funds are not to be used for capital equipment purchases, faculty salary support, publication costs, travel, or institutional overhead.
DEFINITION OF EMERGENCY MEDICINE-CRITICAL CARE RESEARCH
Emergency medicine-critical care research is broadly defined as scientific investigation designed to furnish new knowledge relating to resuscitation science and/or the care of critically ill patients across multiple venues including the prehospital setting, the emergency department, and the intensive care unit. Such investigations or innovations may focus on basic science research, clinical research, epidemiology, health care policy, or teaching and education.
QUALIFICATIONS AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE INVESTIGATORS
EMF Resident Research Grants are available to any physician who will be enrolled as a resident in good standing in an ACGME or AACOM approved emergency medicine residency for the proposed funding year. The resident must have a faculty preceptor who is capable of ensuring the successful completion of the proposed project. A resident may competitively apply in succeeding years for other projects.
It is required that the applicant submit a letter of support from a preceptor at the applicant's institution. This letter must describe the preceptor's and the resident's roles and responsibilities in the proposed project. The preceptor must hold a have and MD, DO, PhD or equivalent degree. The preceptor must have proven ability to pursue independent research as evidenced by original research publications in peer-reviewed journals and/or funding from extramural sources. The preceptor may be in any department within the applicant's institution.
The applicant and preceptor assume responsibility for conducting the research projects and supervising the work of the resident and associate investigators. The applicant and preceptor must demonstrate that access to a suitable caseload or patient population will be available for study during the funding period if a clinical research project is proposed. If a basic science or nonclinical project is proposed, the applicant must show that adequate and appropriately equipped laboratory space will be available during the funding period. Research involving animals or human subjects must be approved by the institutional review board (IRB), or its equivalent, and a copy of the approval or pending approval sent with this application. IRB approval must be documented prior to dispensation of EMF funds. Letters of support from the Emergency Medicine Chair and Residency Director are required.
EVALUATION OF APPLICATIONS
Each application will be reviewed by emergency medicine or critical care specialists who are involved/informed in basic and clinical emergency medicine research. Each application will be judged by: 1) the educational experience for the resident, including a program of instruction on research methods and the format for evaluating the progress of the award year, 2) the role of the resident applicant in the initiation, development, conduct, and reporting of the project, 3) the scientific content of the research projects, including background support, hypothesis statement, methodology, sample size calculations and planned statistical analysis, 4) the significance of the project, and 5) the qualifications of the preceptor. There should be an acknowledgement that the resident is the author of the grant application. The final funding decision will be made by the Emergency Medicine Foundation Board of Trustees, and all decisions are final.
