Emergency Medicine Research Associates


Mentorship Committee

Committee Description

The mentorship committee aims to build intergenerational connections between both current and future healthcare practitioners by pairing EMRAs one-on-one with current emergency department residents. With a particular focus on the clinical practice and patient interaction aspects of emergency medicine, the committee will strive towards the building of such connections through guided shadowing opportunities, increased interpersonal interactions, and invaluable mentorship regarding the pathway to medicine.



Training Committee

Committee Description

The Training Committee aims to equip new members with the knowledge and skills to function independently on shifts as clinical research volunteers. Participation involves regular weekly meetings during training season to standardize the training process and discuss new member progress.



Research Committee

Committee Description

The Research Committee aims to educate the UCLA community about the clinical research we assist with at Ronald Reagan. Current projects include creating and presenting posters for recently completed studies at Poster Day during Undergraduate Research Week. Our hope is that committee members will better understand the implications of the research we are involved with and develop the communication skills to share the results with others.
