Grant to a USA research scholar affiliated with a nonprofit institution for research related to emergency health care. The grantee will complete an original project on health policy. Grant funds are intended for salary, tuition, data collection, and expenses related to policy collaborations. Stipends are awarded for investigations in the United States at an accredited medical school, medical center, or institution affiliated with a university teaching program. The purpose of the Health Policy Scholar Program is to develop a cadre of emergency researchers who are well trained and have an established network to pursue health policy research.

The Emergency Medicine Foundation awards funds for award scholar stipends to support the development of health policy research expertise in emergency medicine. The goals of the EMPI/EMF Health Policy Research Scholar Award Program are 1) to promote research on health policy affecting emergency care, 2) to answer topical health policy questions affecting emergency medical care, and 3) to facilitate the academic growth, advanced education, and development of future leaders in emergency care health policy and thereby invest in the future of the specialty of emergency medicine.

EMPI/EMF Health Policy Research Scholar Award stipends are available to non-profit institutions that possess the facilities for health policy research to promote the academic growth of the research scholar. Awards are made with the stipulation that they are to be used as salary offset, tuition support, data collection, and for expenses related to policy collaborations for the EMPI/EMF Health Policy Research Scholar.

The EMPI/EMF Health Policy Research Award Scholar is intended to provide the opportunity for a one- year period of mentored research on emergency care health policy. The scholar is required to complete at least one independent original project and will be expected to lead directed policy analysis in collaboration with the EMPI Policy Advisor Panel. The scholar will be encouraged to collaborate with at least one policymaking or governmental entity, such as a federal or state agency in order to conduct policy- analysis. The scholar should work in an active, progressive research environment that intimately involves the scholar in the conception, planning, conduct, and reporting of emergency medicine research. Although the aim of the scholarship is not to facilitate the pursuit of additional degrees (MS, PhD, etc.), some of the funding may be used for targeted instruction in relevant topics related to their proposal and academic development, such as health policy, biomedical statistics, research design, and grant writing. At the end of the award period, the scholar should have a foundation in the fundamentals that will prepare the scholar to conduct independent research and compete for extramural funding.

For this grant cycle, EMPI/EMF encourages applications with a focus on one of the priority areas:

  • Cost and value of emergency care
  • Financing and economics of emergency care
  • Innovation and diversification of emergency care delivery
