Research and Scholarly Activity
Research Director: Hao Wang, M.D., Ph.D.
JPS Health Network has a long tradition of residency training and resident participation in scholarly activities. We take pride in our multiple grant-funded investigators that mentor Residents regarding study design, statistics and implementation. JPS maintains a full-time staff of research Nurses to assist with IRB applications, patient enrollment, and data collection and input.
Residents are required to engage in scholarly activity and provide a research product of publishable quality as a prerequisite to graduation. This may take the form of textbook chapters, case reports, original peer reviewed journal articles or another scholarly activity as approved by the Program Director and Research Committee.
Regularly scheduled scholarly activities include:
- Monthly Journal Club
- Grand Rounds Lecture Series
- Net Learning Modules
- Emergency Medicine Research Rotation
- Participation in local, regional and national symposia to include TCEP, ACEP, SAEM and AAEM sponsored research presentations
