Emergency Medical Services Fellowship

Develop the skills and abilities necessary to provide emergency care for critically ill and injured patients while preparing to lead an effective pre-hospital care program.

What sets us apart?

Fellows are involved in both professional and volunteer EMS organizations, in addition to an active air ambulance program. Our fellows cultivate their own scientific interests and give back to the medical community through effective teaching of emergency care to all interested learners. Fellows maintain a strong sense of self-directed, autonomous learning.

Fellows have the opportunity to maintain their clinical skills in the Emergency Department, practice procedures in the Sentara Center for Simulation and Immersive Learning at EVMS, attend national meetings to present research and engage in ground-based and special operations care, including air medical, tactical medical and search and rescue.

A supportive environment

Work-life balance is important during your fellowship, and we are committed to supporting our fellows throughout their time at EVMS. Through EVMS' Wellness Works program, our residents and fellows receive the same wellness resources as our faculty and staff.

In addition, our Resident Wellness program for residents and fellows gives you access to support groups, after-hours counseling services, running clubs, leadership coaching and more.

Wellness in Emergency Medicine

Our commitment to wellness doesn't stop with EVMS' Wellness Works and GME's Resident Wellness programs for all residents and fellows. Emergency Medicine provides added support for trainees through our departmental Wellness and Resilience Committee.

Faculty members mentor one trainee at each level. Residents and fellows get to know their mentors and each other across all levels of training, attending activities such as baseball games, group dinners, ice cream socials and more.
