The Division of Emergency Neurosciences in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Emory University offers a research fellowship for highly qualified emergency physicians interested in the field of neurological emergencies. The curriculum, training and mentorship are tailored to the specific needs and interests of the candidate. The program, led by Dr. David W. Wright, is designed to develop and hone the skills necessary to become an independent clinician researcher and nationally recognized leader in Emergency Medicine research.

The first year of the two-year program concentrates on didactic coursework (e.g MPH or MSCR curriculum) and conducting preliminary work on a research project in an area of programmatic interest. During the second year, fellows finish their Master’s coursework and prepare a grant for submission to a federal agency. Fellows will also have teaching and clinical duties. Clinical research fellows join the Emory Department of Emergency Medicine as faculty members at the clinical instructor level. For candidates who currently hold a Master’s level degree, the fellowship curriculum will be specifically tailored to their needs.
