Research is a fundamental part of Emergency Medicine. Our physicians strive to practice evidence-based medicine and to contribute methodologically-sound research to the medical literature.
Our academic resources are vast. We are home to the Mailman School of Public Health (Columbia University), one of the oldest and most distinguished schools of public health in the United States, as well as the Weill Graduate School of Medical Sciences (Cornell University). We are uniquely positioned to draw on the expertise of the over 500 faculty and 1,500 graduate students engaged in masters and PhD level education. Additionally, the library resources available at each location are world class.
The combined campuses of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital offer tremendous resources and unique settings for conducting research. The hospitals see more than 170,000 emergency patient visits annually, and include specialty receiving status for Trauma, Pediatric Trauma, and Burn Care. The population we serve encompasses a broad spectrum of New Yorkers, both economically and ethnically.
NewYork-Presbyterian faculty have expertise in a wide variety of research areas, including:
- Critical Care
- Evidence-Based Medicine
- Geriatric Emergency Medicine
- Global Health

- Medical Education
- Operations and Work-Flow
- Pre-Hospital and Out-of-Hospital Care

Innovative projects have been presented by faculty and residents at national and international Emergency Medicine scientific conferences and published in a broad array of peer-review journals.
