EMRA Fellowship Guide

Chapter 2 Administration/ED Operations/Patient Safety & Quality Improvement Fellowships

Successful physicians have long known that the practice of medicine is equal parts art and science, but today’s physicians also must be knowledgeable about the business of medicine. Administrative and operations fellowships in emergency medicine were designed to prepare residency graduates with the administrative, quality, health policy, patient safety, research, and operational skills necessary to lead an emergency department, hospital, or health care system, and to research the best approaches to ED operations. At some academic medical centers, institution-wide fellowships focused solely on patient safety and quality improvement have also been created.
