The K12 NHLBI Training Program - CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE
The Vanderbilt Emergency Medicine Research Training Program is a K12 NHLBI sponsored opportunity designed to promote the growth of strong, competitive clinical scientists. We promote a multidisciplinary program to prepare you for an independent research career and academic leadership role within our specialty. This includes comprehensive research training to evaluate innovative approaches for the diagnosis and management of patients with acute, life-threatening diseases. The Vanderbilt training program will concentrate on developing emergency medicine scholarly expertise in acute coronary syndrome, heart failure, arrhythmia, asthma, and acute lung injury. These five focus areas represent areas where Vanderbilt has great scientific depth, national recognition, current emergency medicine NIH funding, and are areas of societal concern. The ability to do research in our focus areas greatly benefits from our institution’s well known strengths in comparative effectiveness, biomedical informatics, genomics, pharmacology, behavioral medicine, health disparities, and an extensive existing emergency medicine research infrastructure. This is bolstered by Vanderbilt’s longstanding success and strong institutional support for career development programs.
Fellowship positions are available to post residency physicians or PhDs. Vanderbilt strongly supports four central tenets of clinical investigator training based on over 5 decades of successful experience – the importance of individualized mentored training, protected time, collaboration between clinical and basic scientists, and structured didactic learning complementing practical applications of such learning through conduct of research. Your training will include a masters of science or public health degree, and mentorship from a carefully assembled team of focus area experts.
All potential mentors are currently engaged in successful federally funded academic research careers, have a track record of proven successful mentorships, and have expressed a strong desire to collaboratively advance clinical emergency care research. These individuals, along with our team of nationally recognized experts as internal advisors, have consistently and routinely devoted a portion of their time to developing future investigators and helped assemble the infrastructure necessary to achieve successful mentorship.
There is growing national concern that there are an inadequate number of clinical investigators in emergency medicine who can translate new research findings into improved patient care. The Vanderbilt Emergency Medicine Research Training (VEMRT) Program will focus on training and mentoring researchers in all aspects of translational and clinical research necessary to prepare them for the challenges in advancing emergency care science.
Join Vanderbilt as we lead the effort to discover, teach, and heal.
