Academic Fellowship (Physician)

Program Director: Ryan Kirby, MD, FAAEM FACEP


This Fellowship Program is an immersive 2-year program that provides an abundant academic career development and research curriculum in the field of Emergency Medicine (EM). With the completion of a 2-year academic Emergency Medicine fellowship, the graduate will gain academic EM experience, fulfill the requirement of being a junior academic EM physician and will develop skills and recognition to further promote to a higher level of academic achievement.

The academic EM fellow will work with the department academic leadership, fellowship program director, and academic faculty to develop their own academic interests. They will also work as an attending physician in the Emergency Department, perform clinical care, oversee resident care at the bedside, develop and give various educational offerings, and participate in department academic and operations meetings.

This program is designed to facilitate the Fellow’s education, experience, and understanding of academic emergency medicine, as well as prepare them to be a leader in our field. By furnishing the tools, resources, and hands-on skills to be actively involved, yet still under the mentorship of academic EM physician leaders, the learning curve for the development of a successful academic EM Physician will be greatly reduced.
