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.
