In support of our mission to train future leaders to advance the practice and science of EM in operations, quality and safety, the DEM established the Administration Section in 2015. Working in collaboration with the Yale School of Management, we launched a two-year Administration Fellowship as well as a residency Area of Concentration (AoC). The section led by Arjun Venkatesh, MD, MBA, MS, and supported by Andrew Ulrich, MD, Vice Chair of Operations, has 14 faculty that have achieved remarkable scholarly success while serving in numerous local and national leadership roles.
The Section of EMS, based on the Yale medical campus in New Haven, is the academic center for EMS in the greater New Haven area. Four full-time and two part-time EMS faculty actively participate in EMS activities at the local, state, and national levels. Yale is responsible for medical oversight of the regional EMS system through the Yale New Haven Hospital Center for EMS.
The Department of Emergency Medicine at Yale has a strong history of commitment to global health education. Graduates of the residency program have consistently gone on to pursue advanced training in international medicine and many of our graduates are engaged in global health careers. Our graduates direct several top international emergency medicine fellowship programs, lead a variety of global health initiatives, and many are actively engaged in emergency humanitarian response with leading governmental and non-governmental agencies.
Dedicated to providing excellent patient care through innovative medical education, assessment, research and outreach, the Section of Simulation oversees The Yale Center for Medical Simulation (YCMS) one of the largest medical school simulation centers in the country. Serving as a model for other institutions, YCMS is a 4,950 square foot, Society for Simulation in Healthcare accredited, state-of-the-art center, promoting the acquisition of basic and advanced clinical skills essential for medical students and residents to master.
We are the primary teaching site of the Yale School of Medicine and see over 100,000 emergency department patients annually. We established our Ultrasound Division in 2002 and started our Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship in 2003. Since 2011, we have been recognized as the Emergency Ultrasound Section of the Yale Department of Emergency Medicine.
