EMS Fellowship Program
Why Train at UT Southwestern
The UT Southwestern Emergency Medical Services Fellowship Program is an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-accredited one-year program for residency-trained physicians offered in conjunction with the Department of Emergency Medicine and the UT Southwestern/Parkland BioTel EMS System. Completion of master's-level graduate training is an optional component of this multidisciplinary fellowship program.
This EMS Fellowship Program is structured to provide a combination of practical experiences and formal training to facilitate the development of fundamental knowledge and skills for a successful career as an EMS medical director. Among our faculty are the medical director for BioTel; the founders and leaders of the annual Gathering of the Eagles EMS conference; physicians renowned for their contributions to prehospital care; and paramedics, physical therapists, and firefighters.
Under these distinguished educators, our fellows will become knowledgeable in the medical, operational, and administrative aspects of EMS medicine as practiced in the prehospital arena in both urban and rural/suburban systems, and will receive the instruction necessary to apply these principles to any EMS system.
