About the Program

This fellowship is a one or two-year program intended to prepare emergency medicine residency graduates for academic careers as leaders and scholars in medical education. The fellowship provides training in educational methods and scholarship. Content areas include curriculum design, instruction/assessment/teaching/learning, scholarship, leadership and career development. Fellows will engage in experiential learning through selected activities and may opt to pursue specific niche interests in graduate medical education, undergraduate medical education or simulation.

Fellows will attend the ACEP Teaching Fellowship. Fellows opting for a two-year training program additionally will complete a master’s degree. Fellows will benefit from access to The Ohio State University’s state-of-the-art simulation Clinical Skills Center, a dedicated education researcher in the department who will assist with scholarship and outstanding education faculty recognized nationally for their leadership and scholarship.
