Special Programs

Research is an important focus for the Section of Prehospital and Disaster Medicine. Members of our faculty are involved in developing innovative programs to enhance the prehospital care and ultimate outcome of patients sustaining an acute ST-segment myocardial infarction. Our faculty members are also playing a key role in support of the department's NIH-funded clinical trial of a promising treatment for traumatic brain injury and are interested in developing and evaluating strategies to involve Emergency Medical Services (EMS) in injury prevention and public health.
