The DHEM Resident Research Grant awards funds to support the development of research in emergency medicine. The goals of the DHEM Resident Research Grant Program (RRGP) are to: (1) promote research within the specialty of emergency medicine (or within closely related disciplines); (2) advance emergency medical care; and (3) facilitate the academic growth and development of future researchers in emergency medicine and thereby invest in the future of the specialty of emergency medicine.

The DHEM Resident Research Grant attempts to maximize the applicant's educational experience in research while producing the best science. The educational agenda is best accomplished in an organized program of instruction on research methods in addition to the completion of the project itself.

A maximum of $5,000 will be awarded for each approved grant application. Funds are not to be used for capital equipment purchases (i.e., equipment costing more than $500 with a life of over one-year), faculty salary support, publication costs, or institutional overhead. Funds for travel may be allowed as long as it directly relates to the scope of work or involves presentation of results from the project at a scientific meeting.
