The Society for Academic Emergency Medicine Foundation is accepting applications to its Academy of Emergency Ultrasound Research Grant program.
The purpose of the grant program is to fill knowledge gaps in the impact of point-of-care ultrasound on patient outcomes and the amount of training needed to achieve competence in performing point-of-care ultrasound. Projects can be ultrasound application-specific (e.g., assessing the impact of an ultrasound application with respect to diagnosis and management); ultrasound practice-specific (e.g., comparing academic and community emergency departments with and without point-of-care ultrasound with respect to throughput, cost-effectiveness, patient safety, etc.); and/or focused on point-of-care ultrasound learning curves to identify performance plateaus for both image acquisition and interpretation.
To be eligible, applicants must be a member of AEUS in good standing at the application deadline and during the entire award period; be a physician holding an applicable terminal clinical degree (e.g., MD, DO); hold a faculty appointment (e.g., faculty, fellow, or similar) in or be actively involved (e.g., have an adjunct appointment) with a department or division of emergency medicine or pediatric emergency medicine and be within five years of their first faculty appointment; and not have received an Academy of Emergency Ultrasound Research Grant previously.
Preference will be given to applicants who demonstrate promise and success in similar projects relevant to ultrasound and evidence of involvement in SAEM activities and functions.
See the SAEM website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
