L41 BIOL 2652Pediatric Emergency Medicine Research Associates Program: Experiences in Life Sciences3.0 Units
Description:The Pediatric Emergency Medicine Research Associates Program (PEMRAP) offers undergraduate premedical 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 experience in the ED may help students determine if medicine is truly their chosen career path. Prerequisite: Sophomore level or higher. Class attendance and ED shifts are mandatory. Students will find specific instructions for registering and applying to the program on the PEMRAP website: http://pediatrics.wustl.edu/pemrap.

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
