EMF encourages application partnerships between research universities and community emergency departments.
Awardees are required to present their work at the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) Scientific Assembly/Research Forum immediately following the completion of the award. At the time of submission, abstracts must not have been accepted for publication in any journal. Also, abstracts may not be presented at any U.S. nationwide emergency medicine meeting or major international emergency medicine meeting prior to the ACEP Scientific Assembly. Presentation at non-emergency medicine meetings is allowed after presentation at ACEP.
Grantees are expected to attend a grantee workshop in Bethesda, MD. The workshop is designed to bring together EMF grant recipients to present their progress and discuss any problems they may be facing. Senior researchers and faculty will be available to help solve problems, such as enrollment efforts, managing staff and life-work balance. NIH program officers participate in this workshop to discuss funding opportunities, provide research career advice and network with the grantees. Travel expenses will be reimbursed by the Emergency Medicine Foundation.
Funds may be used for materials and supplies and to provide salary support. Capital equipment expenditures (costing more than $5,000 and a life of over one year) must be justified in the budget.
