Medical Education Fellowship


This fellowship is a one or two-year program intended to prepare EM residency graduates for academic careers as leaders and scholars in medical education. The fellowship provides training in educational methods and scholarship. Content areas include curriculum design, instruction/assessment/teaching/learning, scholarship, leadership, and career development. Fellows will engage in experiential learning through selected activities and may opt to pursue specific niche interests in graduate medical education, undergraduate medical education, or simulation. Fellows will attend the ACEP Teaching Fellowship; fellows opting for a two-year training program additionally will complete a master’s degree. Fellows will benefit from access to OSU’s state of the art simulation Clinical Skills Center, a dedicated education researcher in the department who will assist with scholarship, and outstanding education faculty recognized nationally for their leadership and scholarship. Contact Andrew King, MD, Fellowship Director, for information.
