Emergency Medicine Research at the U of Ottawa has a long tradition of performing world class clinical and health services studies, firmly based on the principles of clinical epidemiology. We are internationally recognized for our innovative work in resuscitation trials, prehospital research, clinical decision rules, and patient safety. Our five career researchers currently hold over 12 million dollars of peer-reviewed funding from CIHR, NIH, HSFC, and other agencies, and have published more than 300 peer-reviewed papers, many in high-impact journals. We are also proud of the very successful Emergency Medicine Research Fellowship that has trained young researchers from around the world. The Emergency Medicine Research Group is a key member of the Clinical Epidemiology Program of the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute.
