Research Forum

Virtual Research Presentations | April 8, 2021

In response to COVID-19, the annual Wisconsin Emergency Medicine Research Forum will offer alternative programming to spotlight the scholarly work from its residents, fellows, faculty and staff. Details regarding how research abstracts will be presented will be forthcoming, but the event will be virtually available to the academic communities at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Medical College of Wisconsin, and anyone interested in the latest advances in emergency medicine research.

This one-day, free event celebrating regional scholarship takes place during the WACEP Annual Spring Symposium. The Research Forum is intended for emergency medicine physicians, fellows, residents, medical students, nurses, other health care professionals, and researchers.
