Indiana EMCARE Training Program

Indiana Emergency Care Research Training Program at
Indiana University School of Medicine

In July of 2016, the Division of Research received a K12 training award to provide post-doctoral or post-residency level training in emergency care research. Indiana EMCARE (K12HL133310) is co-directed by Jeffrey A. Kline MD, from emergency medicine and Kurt Kroenke MD from internal medicine and the Regenstrief Institute.

This “Trans NIH K12 Program” in Emergency Care Research is funded by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR).  This new program seeks to widen the scientific domain of emergency care research to include mental health and nursing research. 

This program is open to physicians trained in any specialty, and to PhD researchers as long as he or she has an interest in studying the human condition during times of emergency and with a topic of interest to NHLBI, NIMH or NINR. Scholars will meet standards for appointment at the Assistant Professor level, will have 75% protected time for research, and funding for research and training, and will receive a master’s degree in clinical research ( This masters’ requirement can be obviated for scholars who have completed equivalent or greater program. Indiana EMCARE provides the mentoring, environment, and knowledge for scholars to become independently funded researchers. At the end of the program, our scholars will have written a K23 or K08 training grant application, and will have a clear plan toward R01 funding. To learn more, please email Benjamin Judge (
