Emergency Medicine Research Group

Logo for the Emergency Medicine Research Group

Emergency Medicine (EM) is recognised worldwide as a medical speciality that provides a variety of urgent treatment and care interventions to patients. Having established various colleges and fellowships, research projects, and education frameworks, EM has expanded practice in settings in-and out-of-hospital.

Anglia Ruskin University delivers a wide curriculum and programs that educates healthcare professionals to provide high quality emergency care (i.e. Doctors, Nurses, Paramedics, and Physician Associates). Committed clinicians and educators at ARU have come together to establish an EM network to contribute to the professions and community. This group seeks to guide research and education activities as well as being a point of contact for individuals and organisations with similar interests. We appreciate the global diversity of EM and hope to network, discuss, and debate a broad range of topics in this field.
