    ABSTRACT: Education research in emergency medicine has made some advances, but still suffers from poorly designed studies and isolated projects that are small and cannot be generalized to other institutions. This commentary argues for the need of an emergency medicine education research group (EMERG). EMERG would facilitate and coordinate better quality educational research projects at multiple institutions. This in turn would promote faculty development in education research and potentially result in improved educational outcomes and patient care.

    ABSTRACT: In 2010 the Council of Emergency Medicine Residency Directors (CORD) established an Academy for Scholarship in Education in Emergency Medicine to define, promote, recognize, and reward excellence in education, education research, and education leadership in emergency medicine. In this article we describe the mission and aims of the Academy. Academies for medical educators are widespread in medical schools today and have produced many benefits both for faculty and for educational programs. Little effort, however, has been devoted to such a model in graduate medical education specialty societies. While CORD and other emergency medicine organizations have developed numerous initiatives to advance excellence in education, we believe that this effort will be accelerated if housed in the form of an Academy that emphasizes scholarship in teaching and other education activities. The CORD Academy for Scholarship in Education in Emergency Medicine is a new model for promoting excellence in education in graduate medical education specialty societies.
