Institution Collaborator

M-RISE research teams will work with Oakland University, in a populous urban county in Michigan, to grow its medical research program focused on resuscitation science. Robert Swor, DO, FACEP, FAEMS, a professor of emergency medicine at Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine, will help foster collaboration between the universities within the research program.

A large component of M-RISE is its training program in resuscitation science. Fellows will be able to work on each research project, as well as work with Oakland University faculty on clinical and educational experiences, such as ride along care with emergency medical service providers.

“As a learning training program, feedback will be bi-directional, in that not only will there be metrics for trainee engagement, such as presentations and publications, but ultimately, feedback to the program to enhance each of the research projects,” says David J. Pinsky, MD, division chief of cardiovascular medicine at Michigan Medicine and the M-RISE training director. “This program will train an emerging cadre of leaders focused on research and improving systems of care to prevent cardiac arrest and to enhance chances of meaningful recovery.
