Experts in instructional design and academic emergency medicine have taken this very popular and successful program and updated it to meet the needs of today's emergency physician. This program is designed for faculty in residency programs who want to improve their skills, residents interested in an academic career, and other physicians who have responsibility for teaching emergency medicine.

The goals of the Fellowship are to help you: 

  • Develop the skills needed to become successful in an academic environment
  • Become an excellent academic instructor
  • Enhance your management and leadership skills

 The Fellowship focuses on:

  • Fundamentals of teaching and evaluation
  • Designing effective and efficient instruction
  • The realities of competing demands of an academic career-publishing, teaching, research, clinical work

Key benefits of attending the program:

  • You will learn "life skills" that are applicable to more than the academic environment
  • Develop a network of colleagues from across the country
  • Position yourself to be a leader and a spokesperson for emergency medicine

This program consists of 11 days covered in two sessions (fall and spring). Between sessions you will work on the development of instructional materials under the guidance of faculty. This important project will allow you to explore a special area of interest and develop a valuable educational product for your program. All participants share and report the results of their projects during the spring session.
