What to know about The National Registry Mentorship Program


The vision of the National Registry Research Department is to develop and foster EMS-prepared researchers to function with the highest level of scientific integrity to improve and ensure high quality and innovative National Registry products and processes through evidence and collaboration. It is further the mission to contribute to the body of scientific out-of-hospital knowledge to improve the competency, health, safety and wellness of EMS professionals and the patients they serve. In line with this overall mission, the National Registry has developed an 8-week Summer EMS Research Workshop. The primary goal for the attendees of this workshop is to attain a basic understanding of the content specific scope of current EMS research (e.g. resuscitation and airway management), develop a basic understanding of research methodology in EMS, and benefit from close mentor support and network development with nationally recognized, active EMS researchers.
