Student Research Elective

OUDEM has an extraordinarily active and productive Research Section. Faculty are particularly interested in having medical students participate in research projects. Students may either join one of the dozens of ongoing projects, or come with an idea and find a mentor to facilitate moving forward with their own study. Each year, approximately a half-dozen OU medical students are supported by the department to present research findings at national prehospital and EM meetings. This experience provides students valuable education while simultaneously improving their positioning for the competitive EM match. Students interested in pursuing research with OUDEM should contact Dr. Joshua Gentges.
