Fellowship Training

The clinical divisions within the Department of Emergency Medicine at Indiana University School of Medicine support the department’s mission to further education, innovation and service. These divisions provide the setting for the department’s four ACGME-accredited emergency medicine fellowships in medical toxicology, out-of-hospital care (EMS) and pediatric emergency medicine as well as the department’s two subspecialty fellowships in emergency ultrasound and disaster medicine.

Clinical Operations and Administration 

The two-year Emergency Medicine Clinical Operations and Administration Fellowship provides an opportunity for EM physicians to develop valuable skills necessary to become healthcare leaders. Through a partnership with the IU Kelley School of Business, fellows pursue a physician-focused MBA degree by way of an integrated curriculum balancing formal didactics with on-the-job training and experience.

Emergency Ultrasound

The one-year Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship provides hands-on scanning in three busy, downtown, Level I trauma centers at adult and pediatric hospitals. Fellows in this program have the opportunity and resources to complete research.

Disaster Medicine

The one-year Disaster Medicine Fellowship provides a multi-disciplinary approach to disaster preparedness, response and recovery. With wide exposure to various areas of disaster medicine, graduates receive valuable educational experiences at local, regional, national and international levels.

Medical Simulation

The one- to- two-year Medical Simulation Fellowship program is open to doctors across all specialties in medicine. Fellows develop expertise in education, administrative and research aspects of simulation and receive leadership training. Training takes place in the 30,000 square foot IU Health Simulation Center.

Medical Toxicology

The Medical Toxicology Fellowship is a two-year ACGME-accredited program. Fellows gain hands-on management experience with poisoned patients at pediatric and adult regional referral centers, including the Indiana Poison Center, Indiana’s only inpatient toxicology service of its kind.

Out-of-Hospital Care (EMS)

The Out-of-Hospital Care (EMS) Fellowship is a one-year, ACGME-accredited program that offers a robust pre-hospital EMS educational experience, preparing fellows to become leaders in the field of EMS. In partnership with EMS organizations across the city and state, this fellowship immerses the learner in all aspects of pre-hospital medicine.
