Congratulations to Dr. Rachel Solnick as a co-recipient of the SAEM Foundation/AWAEM Research Grant!

Together with co-grantee Dr. Scott Pasichow from Brown EM, and a brilliant team of mentors from Brown and Yale EM (Dr. Alyson McGregor, Dr. Tracy Madsen, Dr. Basmah Safdar), the team will conduct the first national study of parental leave during EM residency. The study aims to better understand the prevalence of childrearing for residents, how residents are taking family leave, program directors perceptions, and institutional supports. Rachel completed her MD at Baylor College of Medicine and will be finishing her residency this year at the Yale Emergency Medicine program. She will be starting a research fellowship with the National Clinical Scholars Program at the University of Michigan next year. We can’t wait to see what she finds!

Congratulations Dr. Solnick!
