The Pediatric Emergency Medicine Research Associates Program (PEMRAP) offers undergraduate pre-medical students an opportunity to participate in clinical, patient-oriented research projects in a hospital setting. Students have the opportunity to work in the St. Louis Children's Hospital Emergency Department, a nationally recognized pediatric emergency medicine and trauma care facility. A number of research projects are currently underway in various areas of pediatric emergency medicine. Research Associates are expected to work two 4-hour shifts per week in the St. Louis Children's Hospital Emergency Department and to attend a weekly 2-hour lecture on Tuesdays from 1:30-3:30pm in Conference Room 10A of the Northwest Tower Building (across from Children's Hospital). Lectures are given by Emergency Department faculty members. This program offers students the unique opportunity to be a vital part of the ED research team. In addition, the RA's experience in the ED may help him/her determine if medicine is truly the career path he/she wishes to choose. Prerequisite: Sophomore level or higher, and approval of Instructor. Registration is done through this website: http://pediatrics.wustl.edu/pemrap. May not be taken concurrently with Bio 2654: MEDPREP II.
