The Emergency Medicine Foundation (EMF) is the charity of emergency physicians. Founded in 1972 by visionary leaders of ACEP, EMF invests its funds to further emergency medicine research and education. To date, EMF has awarded more than $12 million in research grants to advance emergency medicine, science, and health policy. EMF’s mission is to promote education and research that develops career emergency medicine researchers, improves patient care, and provides the basis for effective health policy. Because of its generous donors, EMF awards more than $600,000 in emergency medicine grants each year.
