The fellowship curriculum will be designed to focus primarily on overseas medical mission work for those who choose to pursue the MPH degree.
Fellows will be required to successfully complete the mandatory curriculum and clinical work requirements.
A research project or scholarly work in an area of interest to the fellow, with the expectation of publication or presentation, is required for successful completion of the fellowship. Fellows are strongly encouraged to determine their research interest and focus prior to starting the program.
Fellows are encouraged to attend weekly Emergency Medicine Grand Rounds conferences and monthly EM Journal Club. Each fellow is expected to present one GEM-themed Journal Club or a lecture for the EM residency program annually.
Attending a conference on Tropical Medicine is encouraged but optional.
Fellows will work clinically as employees of Emergency Physicians of Tidewater (EPT), a private practice group that serves as faculty for EVMS Emergency Medicine. Practice opportunities within EPT will serve to broaden the fellow's clinical judgment and experience. We provide the coverage for seven emergency departments (five hospital-based and two freestanding) in the Hampton Roads area (Norfolk, Virginia Beach and Suffolk).
Fellows will have the opportunity to supervise EM residents, off-service residents, and APPs in the ED, and will receive an EVMS faculty appointment at the Instructor level.
