The fellowship year is modeled on the EMS fellowship curriculum endorsed by NAEMSP and the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine. Details regarding both didactic and experiential components of the curriculum are available via our most recent (2002) SAEM/Medtronic Physio-Control application.
There is a significant emphasis on field operations, and all fellows are offered the opportunity to complete Firefighter I or II training, leading to state certification. (Most Section faculty are certified firefighters, on active duty with area municipal volunteer fire departments.)
Attendance at the January NAEMSP and May SAEM meetings is ensured for fellows, along with completion of the NAEMSP National Medical Directors Course and Practicum for those who have not previously completed it.
