The University of Florida Department of Emergency Medicine is excited to offer an array of 1 – 3 year fellowship programs that prepare learners to be successful practitioners in both academic and community practice. Don’t forget to check out the many perks and benefits offered by the Graduate Medical Education Office.
The Department of Emergency Medicine has developed a fellowship in administration and operations specifically designed to prepare future leaders by developing expertise in quality management, process improvement, human resource management, financial management, information technology, program development, ED operations, and overall leadership. This fellowship prepares the fellow to be an assistant or associate medical director within academic medicine and a medical director in the community or private practice environment.
The departments of Emergency Medicine and Anesthesiology’s Division of Critical Care Medicine at UF Health Shands Hospital and the University of Florida are seeking EM residency-trained or board-certified emergency physicians as applicants for our joint Critical Care/Emergency Medicine Fellowship.
Emergency Medical Services is the newest subspecialty of Emergency Medicine. The EMS physician plays a key role in the prehospital healthcare system to create and update medical care protocols, train field personnel, perform quality assurance, and decide appropriate new equipment.
Physicians practicing Global Emergency Medicine (GEM) have a goal to improve worldwide health. The specialty allows them to work in a multitude of settings and clinical environments, something that no other specialty can do. Many emergency physicians specifically choose the specialty due to their desire to work internationally in low- and middle-income countries but realize that skills beyond clinical practice in an American Emergency Department are needed to become an expert in global medicine.
Our pediatric emergency medicine fellowship program focuses on the delivery of extraordinary clinical care with an emphasis on academics and research in an effort to prepare graduates to care for children in both academic or community environments upon their graduation. Not only will our fellows graduate with the clinical experiences and knowledge base to care for pediatric emergency patients, but also the research, teaching, and administrative skills necessary to thrive in whatever environment they choose to practice in after graduation.
The simulation fellowship provides a foundational experience in medical simulation to qualified applicants, facilitating successful academic, clinical, and research careers in medical simulation and enhancing the quality of medical simulation in general.
The Department of Emergency Medicine is now offering opportunities for emergency medicine graduates to pursue a fellowship in sports medicine though UF’s Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship. This ACGME accredited fellowship is offered in conjunction with the Department of Community Health and Family Medicine and seeks to produce excellent primary care sports medicine physicians, equipped for a lifetime of learning and prepared for a successful and fulfilling career in primary care sports medicine.
Our Department offers a one year fellowship in Emergency Ultrasound with a focus on mastering the advanced use of bedside ultrasound and its instruction, as well as administration of an Emergency Ultrasound Program, including Quality Assurance and equipment/software maintenance.
