Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center has introduced its first fellowship program. The two-year Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Fellowship will allow Emergency Medicine physicians to further their EMS medicine education and earn a Certificate of Added Qualification in EMS offered by the American College of Osteopathic Emergency Physicians.
Conemaugh EMS Fellows will participate intimately with the paid and volunteer EMS, Fire, Police and County resources that service the Laurel Highlands. Clinical rotations include Aeromedical EMS, Weapons of Mass Destruction, EMS System Design, Research, Governmental Medical Oversight, EMS Patient Simulations and Education, Tactical EMS, Scene Command, Funding / Grant Writing, Bariatric EMS and Hospital Disaster Planning.
“We are very excited to begin teaching our Emergency Medicine Physicians how to improve medical care in the pre-hospital setting,” says Neil Yoder, DO, Director, Conemaugh EMS Fellowship. “This will not only give the Emergency Physicians the tools they need to lead and direct the many EMS agencies, but it will also allow for improvement and progression of Emergency treatment through education and research.”
The program is a joint venture between Conemaugh Health System and Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine – Osteopathic Postdoctoral Training Institution (OPTI).
