Common Elements of Emory Emergency Medicine Fellowships

The Department of Emergency Medicine offers a wide variety of postgraduate training opportunities.

The participant's performance will be formally reviewed by the fellow's mentor as well as faculty advisors from both within and outside the Department of Emergency Medicine. Clinical performance will be evaluated by the Emergency Department Medical Director/Service Chief of the research fellow's base hospital and reviewed by the Chairman of the Department of Emergency Medicine. Written feedback will include evaluations by all training physicians and students who were mentored by the fellow.
