The Department of Emergency Medicine has an active, ongoing research program that provides ample opportunities for students and residents to participate in research and scholarly activities. We offer experiences that enable discovery, promote creativity and research. As a department we are committed to pursuing inquiry, disseminating knowledge, and fostering critical thinking that encourages lifelong learning.
The Emergency Medicine residency curriculum includes the principles of research design, methodology, biostatistics and analysis, and the ethical principles of clinical and translational research. Many resident projects are presented at the annual Kalamazoo Community Medical and Health Sciences Research Day. In addition, to many other prestigious regional and national venues. Many such projects are published in peer-reviewed journals.
Our faculty provide research mentorship in a wide variety of interests. Richard Lammers, MD is the director for research in the Department of Emergency Medicine.
