The Emergency Medical Services Fellowship at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center is a one-year (12-month), ACGME-accredited program that admits one fellow per year.
Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center’s Emergency Medical Services Fellowship is designed to provide physicians with the experience and training in operations, research, education and administration to contribute to EMS systems in a variety of settings.
The fellowship is designed to immerse the fellow in all aspects related to ground and air EMS medicine. The Department of Emergency Medicine has direct oversight of Life Lion Critical Care Transport, Life Lion EMS and several other ground EMS services. The unique geography of the region affords experience and training in both rural and urban settings. Multiple EMS faculty physicians are available to provide mentorship. Experience in medical command, service oversight, field response, EMS research and the many interactions that occur with more than 200 prehospital personnel dedicated to the provision of EMS care are available to candidates.
The fellow will have a clinical faculty appointment through Penn State College of Medicine’s Department of Emergency Medicine. EMS fellows have the opportunity to earn a master’s degree in public health or homeland security by adding an optional second year to their fellowship program. These degrees round out the skill set of graduating EMS physicians and assist in their readiness to assume roles in public health and disaster medicine leadership.
Applicants must be graduates of an accredited ACGME residency program in Emergency Medicine.
