Research Roundup!

Highland residents, mid-levels, research staff, faculty and alumni have been busy churning out the

publications this year so far. We're not done with 2017, but we've already got 15 publications out the door, with more in submission / active review at a variety of EM and non-EM journals. The current list includes publications in the top peer reviewed journals of our field, including Annals of Emergency Medicine, American Journal of Emergency Medicine, Western Journal of Emergency Medicine, Academic Emergency Medicine, Journal of Ultrasound Medicine, and the CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. Publication topics include ultrasound, nerve blocks, social emergency medicine, public health screening, prehospital care, medical education, firearm injury research and toxicology. See the list below, and let us know if we've missed anything. Additionally, you'll find more info about Highland research publications and projects in the EM Research section of this website, as well as at Levitt Center's website. Happy reading!
