The Fellowship goal is to provide promising EMS physicians with the opportunity to explore innovative systems management, prehospital research, and challenging educational objectives under the guidance of established EMS physician mentors in an academic setting.
Curriculum: The UNC EMS Fellowship will provide a solid education in all aspects of both ground and aeromedical systems, as well as medical direction at the state level and cutting edge prehospital information technology over a period of 24 months. The fellow will join the UNC faculty in medical direction for both an innovative EMS system in Orange County (urban/rural mix) and an aeromedical program that includes both rotary and ground support units. Additionally, the fellow will participate in medical direction at the state level and be involved with PreMIS, the Prehospital Medical Information System, an evolving technology for web-based prehospital information management. The fellow will also have the opportunity to interact with the Trauma Registry, a statewide database for traumatic injuries, and with Wake County EMS (a large urban EMS system). The fellow will obtain a Master's degree in Public Health during the first year of the program.

Preference will be given to applicants with demonstrated EMS interest and involvement, as evidenced by research participation, educational endeavors, or previous medical direction experience.
