The UC Irvine School of Medicine's Department of Emergency Medicine is committed to furthering knowledge in our specialty through research.
Our internationally recognized faculty are experts in research on population-based health, education and administration. Our goal is to engage in translational research that brings discovery from the bedside to the population at large.
Our emergency department serves a diverse patient population with a wide variety of pathology. This gives us a natural pool of patients with whom we can explore a multitude of questions.
As a result, we are simultaneously involved in many federal and foundation grants as well as industry-sponsored trials. In the 2015 alone, our faculty published more than 30 research articles.
Our department is dedicated to research. As one of the nationally funded Institutes for clinical and translational science, we have the departmental and university resources to enable our faculty to thrive in their research pursuits.
