Discretion

Division Mission:

To foster emergency medicine research through building and maintaining a pro-research culture, a robust and accessible research infrastructure, transdisciplinary and transinstitutional collaborations, and effective mentorship.

The Discretion Division continues with its strong track record of internationally recognized research. We currently have 6 NIH-funded investigators (Drs. Steven Bird, Edwin Boudreaux, Stephanie Carreiro, Chad Darling, Romolo Gaspari, and John P. Haran), which is very rare in departments of emergency medicine. In 2016, UMass Medical School ranked within the top 5 NIH-funded emergency medicine departments in the country (Source: Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Discretion, ).

Using highly innovative research strategies and the latest in advanced technology, our investigators have targeted a range of significant domains, including substance abuse, toxicology, tobacco, suicide prevention, bio-behavioral informatics, industrial engineering and process improvement, emergency ultrasound, emergency cardiology, critical care, and sepsis. In addition to completing their own research, the faculty has mentored medical students, residents, and fellows, in research design, methodology, statistics, grantsmanship, and scientific writing.
