Our program is an excellent option for the Emergency Physician (EP), with three board certified EPs as core faculty who continue to work regularly, if not predominantly, in the Prisma Health Emergency Departments. Five of our previous fellows have backgrounds in EM (see link), so we are very sensitive to the importance of maintaining one’s procedural and acute care skills during the fellowship year. As a fellow, EPs will work one 8-10 hour shift per week alongside one of the EM/SM faculty members. As “attendings”, we will make sure the fellow achieves the case and procedural load they are hoping for.
Greenville Memorial Hospital is a large, academic, level I trauma center seeing over 100,000 patient visits per year with 814 inpatient beds, and a dedicated Pediatric Emergency Center. Satellite hospitals within the Prisma Health system (Greer, Hillcrest, North Greenville, Baptist Easley, Laurens) provide a community ED experience for fellows.
The Department of Emergency Medicine also has a new residency program that began in July of 2017. EM fellows will have ample opportunity to lecture, attend joint conferences, provide bedside teaching, and work alongside EM residents on a regular basis.
The faculty mentor for EM fellows will be one of our core EM/SM faculty members. We can help guide you through the challenging board certification process and job search during your fellowship. As with each of our tracks, alterations can be made to accommodate any specific interests or goals the fellow may have.
