Applicant Information

The University of Chicago Medicine has hosted a 12-month ACGME accredited EMS Fellowship since 2017.  Emergency medical services is a clinical specialty that includes the care of patients in all environments outside of traditional medical care facilities, including clinics, offices, and hospitals. It includes evaluation and treatment of acute injury and illness in all age groups, planning and prevention, monitoring, and team oversight. 

Our EMS Fellowship Program has three main aims: 

  1. Recruit dynamic physicians with leadership potential and diverse backgrounds, interests, and experiences
  2. Provide a comprehensive training program covering all aspects of EMS Medicine
  3. Train professional EMS Physicians to become leaders in the subspecialty of EMS Medicine

The fellowship supports two fellows per year.  In addition to the EMS experiences and curriculum, the fellow maintains their primary board specialty by working six shifts a month in the University of Chicago Emergency Department, which is a busy, high-acuity, academic tertiary care hospital on the south side of Chicago. We offer a competitive salary and benefits package through the Graduate Medical Education office based on the fellow post graduate year. 

For EMS fellow applicants looking for a program that provides experience in medical direction for a large EMS system with a diverse clinical environment and an academic focus – we look forward to meeting you!
