Emergency Medicine

Research Day

The Department of Emergency Medicine holds an annual Research Day to showcase the outstanding research conducted by our faculty, staff, residents and students. Emergency Medicine often engages in collaborative projects alongside other Faculty of Medicine departments, public and private sector organizations. At the DEM Research Day, we also invite a distinguished speaker to give the keynote address.
