Emergency Medicine Research

The faculty of the Division of Emergency Medicine at Boston Children's Hospital conducts research studies in a wide variety of areas.  Groundbreaking clinical and laboratory research has focused on the approach to treatment of children suffering from concussion, appendicitis, and infectious diseases such as pneumonia and meningitis.  Additionally, the division harbors experts in the areas of quality improvement science, diagnostic imaging, medical education and simulation.  Several faculty members have advanced degrees in epidemiology, public health, and education, and several have received funding to support their research.  Faculty members have published their work in prestigious general and pediatric medical journals, and many serve on editorial boards for such journals and have ranking positions in national pediatric societies.
