ED Research Enroller Program

The Department of Emergency Medicine sponsors a research assistant program to facilitate enrollment in clinical trials in the emergency department (ED). These research assistants screen patients in the ED to identify patients who qualify for various federally funded, grant-funded, industry-funded, and Department-funded research projects. Currently, research assistant coverage is available in the ED approximately 100 hours per week.  Many of our research assistants are students or recent graduates preparing for careers in the health sciences. Research assistant or research nurse coordinator services are available to investigators from within the Department and to investigators from throughout the University of Iowa.
