Fellowship in EM Administrative Leadership
EM Administrative Leadership Fellowship
Gregory Volturo, MD, FACEP, Fellowship Director
The Emergency Medicine Administrative/Leadership Fellowship provides the opportunity for emergency physicians to develop key administrative skills essential to becoming future leaders in the delivery of emergency care and healthcare in general.
The primary goal of the fellowship is to prepare the fellow to be a strong ED clinical operations director. The focus of the training therefore is in the areas of ED operations and quality. However, exposure to hospital and medical center administrative topics is also prioritized in order for the Fellow to gain deeper perspective of how the ED and ED management interacts most effectively within the hospital and health system. To meet these goals, the fellow will participate in: 1) multiple departmental, hospital and health system committees and work groups, 2) emergency department peer review and patient complaint investigations, 3) on-the-job training by taking primary responsibility for multiple process improvement projects (with oversight and guidance from Fellowship faculty), and 4) one or more local or national emergency medicine organizations.
The fellowship has the option to be completed in one or two years; the two-year option is strongly encouraged because it allows the Fellow to concurrently pursue Master’s level training (MBA, MPH, MMM, MHA or MHSA).During the fellowship, the fellow will practice clinically as a junior attending in the Emergency Department.
Fellowship faculty includes physician and non-physician leaders who have expertise in various aspects of Emergency Department, Hospital and Health Care System administration. Collectively the faculty’s experience covers every essential aspect of Emergency Medicine administration as well as multiple hospital and health system. In addition, their experience also covers academic, urban and community Emergency Medicine practices. Each faculty member has substantial experience in their respective areas of expertise as well as experience in mentorship and education.
