Overview

EMS is a medical subspecialty that involves prehospital emergency patient care, including initial patient stabilization, treatment, and transport in specially equipped ambulances or helicopters to hospitals. The purpose of EMS subspecialty certification is to standardize physician training and qualifications for EMS practice, improve patient safety and enhance the quality of emergency medical care provided to patients in the prehospital environment, and facilitate further integration of prehospital patient treatment into the continuum of patient care.

As such, we now offer a one to two-year Emergency Medicine Fellowship Program that provides training and education in all aspects of EMS including operations, training, research, tactical, disaster, international, administration, and treatment. The Fellowship Program prepares physicians to be leaders in the field of emergency medicine and to conduct all aspects of EMS system medical direction.
