Emergency Medicine Fellowship for Students Underrepresented in Medicine
The Ronald O. Perelman Department of Emergency Medicine at NYU Langone and NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue is pleased to offer the fifth annual Emergency Medicine Fellowship for Students Underrepresented in Medicine. We are committed to increasing diversity within the field of emergency medicine and our goal is to provide motivated and interested preclinical medical students, or rising MS2s, with in-depth exposure to emergency medicine early on in their medical school education.
We encourage students who are currently in their first year of medical school who are interested in emergency medicine to apply to our four-week summer fellowship. We are offering five funded positions, which include NYU housing and travel to New York City. If COVID-19 prohibits us from allowing an in-person fellowship, we will host a virtual fellowship for 10 students.
The Association of American Medical Colleges defines underrepresented in medicine as “those racial and ethnic populations that are underrepresented in the medical profession relative to their numbers in the general population.”
Our fellowship curriculum includes didactic and clinical training designed to provide fellows with hands-on experience in many aspects of emergency medicine.
Fellows participate in procedure workshops, simulation sessions, social medicine initiatives, ultrasound workshops, resident conference, journal club, lectures given by our faculty and residents, toxicology rounds, quality and safety conference, pediatric emergency medicine rounds, teaching sessions with high school students, and a wilderness medicine outing.
Each student is paired with an emergency medicine faculty preceptor and resident whom the student will shadow on shifts. Students are exposed to tremendous diversity in clinical pathology and patient populations by rotating through the different hospitals within our academic center, including our tertiary care center at NYU Langone; the country’s first public hospital at NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue (a Level 1 Trauma Center); and NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn (a Level 1 Trauma Center).
