The mission of the Research Directors Interest Group is to provide an interactive group of research leaders (i.e. Research Directors or Vice Chairs of Research) at EM residency and EM departments interested in furthering Research whether Clinical, Translational, Basic Science, Social, Database or Educational/MedEd in origin.
The interest group was initially intended for the Research Directors but will allow for all those with research interest and desire to fulfill leadership in their Departments to participate.
The objectives of the Research Directors Interest Group are to:
- Collaborate with SAEM research-based interest groups and committees (i.e. EBHI, Research Committee, Vice Chairs) to submit a didactic for the annual meeting.
- Perform analysis on the state of research departments nationally including academic vs community distribution and resource utilization, then disseminate results.
- Continue the RDIG guest lecture series.
