Students and faculty recognized at Academic Emergency Medicine Research Meeting

Representatives from the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine Department of Emergency Medicine were recognized with a number research awards at the Fourth Annual Great Plains Society for Academic Emergency Medicine Research Meeting on September 28, 2013.

Four UI representatives won in total, including: Terrence Wong for Best Medical Student Poster Presentation, Andrew Stoltze for Best Medical Student Oral Presentation, Kari Harland for Best Faculty Poster Presentation and Nicholas Mohr, MD, clinical assistant professor of emergency medicine, for Best Faculty Oral Presentation.

Each year, there are six regional Society for Academic Emergency Medicine conferences, with this year’s Great Plains Meeting being hosted by the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine’s Division of Emergency Medicine. The goal of the meetings is to provide opportunities for young investigators to present their original research and participate in sessions designed to teach them essential research skills. The conferences also promote academic exchange among multiple residency programs and their faculty and residents.

The regional meetings culminate in the SAEM Annual Meeting which is being held May 13-17, 2014 in Dallas.
