At a time when the life-saving importance of emergency medicine has never been more widely understood, less than one percent of National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding supports research in the specialty. The COVID-19 pandemic shines a light on the need for expert, evidence-driven care in medical crises from the everyday to the epidemic and the quality of that care depends on the strength of the research that supports it.
The SAEM Foundation is our specialty's leader in funding research that empowers emergency physicians, saves lives, and improves outcomes for patients everywhere. At a time of great need, we're ready to make the largest research investment in our specialty's future. Take a look at this year's SAEMF Impact Report to learn more about how a donation to SAEMF can make a significant impact on emergency medicine's (EM) future by funding more EM research.
