  4. Demonstrate the ability to teach health services research skills to emergency physicians
  5. Complete a systematic review in their primary area of interest
  6. Complete at least one health services research project

  8. Complete a first-authored manuscript and submit it to a peer-reviewed journal

Salary and benefits are set by the Department of Emergency Medicine and the University of California annually.
