IES Knowledge Translation


IES is committed to enhancing the field of emergency medicine through a variety of educational and research-oriented avenues. We have generated over five years’ worth of published research focusing on advancing medical science. And, we organize and participate in an ongoing series of pragmatic and translational trials to identify best practices and, ultimately, improve healthcare outcomes.

Unlike many other emergency groups, IES strives to be the community example of academic emergency medicine through the practical application of best practices. Our academic program is a 60/40 split between instruction at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas, and providing continuing medical education directly to our IES physicians.

Our goal is to teach current and future providers best practices and show them how to be active proponents of change and improvement in their field by drawing upon a vast number of patient encounters and the experience of our tight-knit community. Our academic culture identifies, promotes and implements clinical best practices. Leveraging expertise in both clinical leadership strategy and knowledge translation, our ability to develop and implement evidence-based protocols is unparalleled. Through innovation and implementation, we are able to disseminate best practices.

At traditional teaching hospitals, the scope of patient cases available to study can be limited. At IES, our faculty benefit from access to a clinical lab with data accumulated from one million patients which can be incorporated into their teaching curricula.
