The EMS and Disaster Medicine fellowship is designed to prepare emergency physicians to assume responsibilities as a medical director of an EMS system of any size or to accept a position as a senior leader in a disaster preparedness organization. One of the strengths of our program is our partnership with the Houston Fire Department (HFD), the third largest fire and EMS organization in the country. The fellow will serve as an Assistant Medical Director for HFD and will fully participate in all aspects of EMS medical direction, including field response. Disaster education will come from both didactic and experiential opportunities. The fellow has the option of a one- or two-year fellowship, with the option of pursing a Master’s degree in Public Health or clinical research. The fellow will work approximately six (eight hour) clinical shifts per month and be actively involved with our department’s educational program.
Applications will be accepted June 1 – September 30.
