Fellowship in Emergency Department Safety & Quality

Fellowship in Emergency Department Safety & Quality

Led by faculty in NYU Langone’s Ronald O. Perelman Department of Emergency Medicine, the Kenneth and JoAnn G. Wellner Fellowship in Emergency Department Safety and Quality promotes the next generation of physician leaders as effective agents for change.

The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the Association of American Medical Colleges recognize that there is a nationwide deficit of trained and proficient faculty capable of engaging, modeling, and leading educational efforts in patient quality and safety.

The goal of our program, offered by the Division of Emergency Medicine Quality, Safety, and Practice Innovation, is to train physicians in the administrative and academic aspects of medical quality, patient safety, and practice innovation, preparing them for leadership roles in administration, education, patient care, and quality assurance.
