Penn State Hershey Emergency Medicine has re-established an EMS Fellowship to provide physicians with the necessary experience and training in operations, research, education and administration to contribute to EMS systems in a variety of settings.
Penn State Hershey Emergency Medicine has direct oversight over both Life Lion Critical Care, specialized critical care, and ground transport services. The unique geography of the region affords experience and training in both rural and urban settings. Approximately 10,000 inter-facility and 911 related BLS and ALS ground transports and 2,000 aero-medical transports occur annually. Three prior EMS fellows have completed training at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and now 6 EMS oriented faculty are available to provide mentorship. Experience in medical command, service oversight, EMS research and the many interactions which occur with the other 120 full-time equivalents dedicated to the provision of EMS care are available to candidates.
Applicants must be graduates of an Accredited ACGME Residency Program in Emergency Medicine.
The EMS fellowship is two years in length and includes a number of options for achieving a Master's degree in the Department of Public Health Sciences at Penn State College of Medicine. The Fellow will have a clinical faculty appointment through Penn State Hershey Emergency Medicine.
