Emergency Medicine Education Fellowship Program At-A-Glance

The purpose of the Emergency Medicine Education Fellowship at UMass Chan Medical School-Baystate, is to provide new clinicians with the necessary mentored experience and didactics to become successful, independent, future leaders in academic emergency medicine.

We offer a 1-year fellowship with an option for a second year to earn a Masters in Graduate Medical Education. Our curriculum focuses on preparing the next generation of EM faculty with flexible concentrations in UME, GME, Simulation, Education Innovation, and Education Research.
