The UC Davis Department of Emergency Medicine offers a two-year Emergency Medicine Research Fellowship. The program combines training in clinical emergency medicine research with graduate level training at UC Davis leading to either a Masters of Science in Clinical Epidemiology (MAS) or Masters in Public Health (MPH). The research fellowship is Society of Academic Emergency Medicine (SAEM) approved.

The UC Davis Department of Emergency Medicine maintains a strong commitment to clinical research in emergency medicine. The Department has a broad area of research interests and expertise and participates in several multi-departmental collaborations and multi-center clinical trials. Areas of focused research include but are not limited to: trauma evaluation and management, injury prevention, clinical emergency cardiology, prehospital care, pediatric emergency medicine, development and validation of clinical prediction models, infectious disease, international emergency medicine and ultrasonography.

In addition, UC Davis is a leading center in the Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN), the first federally funded research network in pediatric emergency medicine. Research fellows will also have access to research resources and infrastructure through the UC Davis Clinical and Translational Science Center.
