Background:

Center for Prehospital Pediatrics and Emergency Research (CPPER)
Located within the Division of Emergency Medicine at Children's National
Medical Center, The Center  for Prehospital Pediatrics and Emergency Research
(IPPER) serves as an advocate for Emergency Medical Services for Children
(EMSC). The Institute was conceived in order to better meet the unique needs
of children. During its tenure, the Institute has developed several programs
and products and implemented several initiatives to improve the care of
critically ill and injured children and provide resources to the national
EMSC community. In so doing the Institute has worked to promote better care
for children in the emergency setting not only in the region, but also
nationwide.

   WBCARN/PECARN
The Washington Boston Chicago Applied Research Node (WBCARN) based at
Children’s National Medical Center is one of six nodes that comprise the
organizational structure of the national Pediatric Emergency Care Applied
Research Network (PECARN) PECARN is the first federally- funded pediatric
emergency medicine research network, consisting of 18 hospital emergency
departments dedicated to rigorous, multi-institutional research on the
prevention, management  and rehabilitation of acute illness and injury in
children.  The goal of this network is to provide a framework for conducting
meaningful and rigorous pediatric research. Since its inception in 2001,
PECARN has demonstrated high quality pediatric emergency medicine research.
PECARN has implemented seven full projects; including over 10 federally
funded studies that include 4 randomized controlled trials. The resources of
the network include a well-established infrastructure, which encompass 18
funded site investigators collectively representing 76 specialties, and areas
of expertise that range the spectrum of EMSC research, including bioethics,
biostatistics and epidemiology.  Included among the resources offered by
PECARN is a dedicated governance structure that maintains stringent project
oversight and management to monitor quality assurance and provide additional
data management and analysis support.
   The WBCARN node is made up of 1 research node center, 2 regional hospital
emergency department affiliates (HEDAs). Children’s National Medical Center
serves as the research node center for the following HEDAs- Boston
Children’s Hospital, Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.  WBCARN’s
hospitals include urban and suburban, academic and non-academic institutions,
dedicated children’s emergency departments  as well as pediatric emergency
departments embedded in adult centers. WBCARN hospitals collectively serve
over 200,000   patients per year. Patients served by these hospitals
represent a broad range of racial and ethnic as well as socio-economic
diversity.

Academic Associate Program
The program is meant to represent a unique opportunity for students to
directly participate in the performance of clinical research, while also
observing overall ED operations and interacting with physicians, nurses, and
other health care personnel.

•	Students will gain research experience working in the emergency
department that will serve them in their decision-making in developing a
career in public health and/or medicine
•	Students will be exposed to the practical application of research to
provide critical context and texture to research theory they may have
received in the classroom.
•	The CNMC ED (CPPER and WBCARN) offers a broad diversity of research from
basic observational studies to complex randomized controlled trials thereby
exposing students to the full spectrum of research applications in a single
clinical setting.
•	It has been shown that students involved in research activities during
training are more likely to continue a career in research when mentorship has
been established. Motivated students will have the opportunity to develop
mentor/mentee relationship with faculty and clinical staff which, given
appropriate motivation on the part of each individual student, could result
in graduate school/professional recommendation letters from faculty and the
opportunity to develop an individual research project and/or work in an
externship capacity with an individual faculty member on an existing research
protocol.

Research Experience

The individual will work directly with a project coordinator and research
assistant to manage the day to day activities of the various studies. These
include, but are not limited to:
