Welcome!

Welcome to the website of the Research Group on Emergency and Disaster Medicine Brussels (ReGEDiM Brussels) of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB).

ReGEDiM is working closely together with the Department of Emergency Medicine of the university hospital (Universitair Ziekenhuis Brussel). Within ReGEDiM a subdivision is made into an emergency medicine section and a disaster medicine section. Members of the Department of Emergency Medicine are involved in all operational aspects of emergency and disaster medicine response and are stimulated to develop research activities related to their expertise.

More than a decade ago the VUB started, in collaboration with the Universita del Piemonte Orientale (UPO) a second level masterprogram in disaster medicine (European Master in Disaster Medicine - EMDM). This masterprogram was accredited by the Flemish Government in 2008. As in other disciplines education in disaster medicine can only be achieved with a high level of quality if this is supported by a solid scientific basis. The mission of the researchgroup is to perform high level scientific research in the field of disaster medicine.

In the field of emergency medicine the VUB organises a second level masterprogram in Emergency Medicine (3 years and 6 years program). This masterprogram was also accredited by the Flemish Government in 2008. Besides local training and education the program is set up in close collaboration with other Flemish Universities. Also in the emergency medicine training a sufficient level of quality can be obtained if scientific evidence exists. Besides research in disaster medicine, ReGEDiM is performing high level scientific research in different fields of emergency medicine.
