CanROC Site Summary – Saskatchewan

University of Saskatchewan
Department of Emergency Medicine

The CanROC mandate in Saskatoon is overseen by Emergency Medicine faculty at the University of Saskatchewan, and colleagues from our prehospital EMS provider. Although relatively new, the department of Emergency Medicine has an active research program at the University of Saskatchewan, with many physicians including research as part of their practice. Areas of expertise include ultrasound, social media and knowledge translation, medical education and Indigenous health. Resuscitation focused research at the University of Saskatchewan is still in its infancy, but we have active resuscitation projects and with our robust pre-hospital database have the capacity to add more.

The University of Saskatchewan can accommodate its own residents for pursuing graduate training in resuscitation science or other areas of interest, as part of their residency training. We routinely take Emergency Medicine elective students, and if you have a passion for resuscitation research, we would love to hear from you.

Investigators who would consider supervising/mentoring students include:
Dr Phil Davis – Assistant Professor, Research Director - Department of Emergency Medicine
