Graduate Fellowships in Emergency Medicine Help Solve Workforce ShortagesJan 17, 2011
Tampa – Graduate fellowships in emergency medicine help solve critical workforce shortages in many over-crowded emergency departments. The American Academy of Emergency Physicians (AAEP) invites medical teaching institutions to learn how its Post-Primary Care Graduate Fellowship in Emergency Medicine program may help them alleviate this growing shortage.
“AAEP credentials emergency medicine fellowship programs that prepare primary care physicians with backgrounds in family medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine and general surgery to become highly qualified in emergency medicine,” said AAEP Vice President David M. Lemonick, M.D., FAAEP.
These fellowships are intended to meet the rigorous national board certification standards of the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS®), the official certifying body of the American Association of Physician Specialists, Inc. (AAPS).
“Fellows work under the supervision of faculty members experienced in all aspects of emergency medicine,” said Loren Crown, M.D., FAAEP, program chair.
Upon completion of post-graduate training and practice experience, participating physicians are eligible to apply for Board Certification in Emergency Medicine (BCEM), one of 17 member boards of the American Board of Physician Specialties.
