EMS/ Disaster Medicine Fellowship

Einstein EMS Physicians participate in a training session/exercise to safely operate on electrified passenger rail incidents

The Einstein EMS and Disaster Medicine Fellowship is designed to provide emergency medicine physicians the opportunity to be educated and trained in the administrative, medical oversight and field aspects of EMS systems. The Fellowship provides a wide range of opportunities including ground and air operations, hazmat training, paramedic didactic and clinical instruction, administrative and research experiences, community resource management, disaster planning and training opportunities, dispatch/communication operations and exposure to all models of EMS agencies (volunteer, career, public service, regional and state). Rural, urban, and suburban educational opportunities are provided.  Individuals successfully completing the fellowship will excel as Medical Director in any pre-hospital agency or system. 

The division also interfaces with all emergency management initiatives within the Einstein Health Network. EM residents have the opportunity to sit in on Emergency Management Committee meetings and actively participate in all exercises and drills. Fellows sit on the Emergency Management Committee along with Division members as the Committee ensures network preparedness. The Committee is co-Chaired by a Division member. Fellows also participate in Emergency Management for EMS locally and regionally. 

Fellows function as faculty for the Department of Emergency Medicine and have opportunities for resident and medical student education.
