Research Group on Emergency and Disaster Medicine of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel
ReGEDiM is the Research Group on Emergency and Disaster Medicine of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). Our mission is to bring Emergency and Disaster Medicine to a higher level by creating and sharing scientific research, field expertise and knowledge.
The ReGEDiM organizes several master programs in Emergency and Disaster Medicine. Almost 20 years ago it created in collaboration with the Universita del Piemonte Orientale the European Master in Disaster Medicine (EMDM). The ReGEDiM also offers local training and education programs. To improve and teach different skills ReGEDiM has access to a skills lab and simulation centre.
Research is the cornerstone of any innovation and advance in Emergency and Disaster Medicine. ReGEDiM uses high level scientific and technological methods (computer-simulation) to perform research. Our research activities are carried out in close collaboration with the Department of Emergency Medicine of the University Hospital Brussels (Universitair Ziekenhuis Brussel). ReGEDiM collaborates closely with several universities, international and national organizations. An overview of collaborations will soon be listed on our website.
