Military Fellowship Opportunities

Train in a Military Focused Emergency Medicine Specialty Fellowship in Denver

The Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Colorado and Denver Health Medical Center has several fellowships that cater to the unique skillset needed by military emergency physicians.  With a focus on combat casualty care in future battlefield environments, we are training emergency physicians to be leaders in the military and experts in civilian health care systems, and hospitals. We have a 20-year long history of training military emergency physicians in specialty fellowship programs and training DoD medics (e. g. SOF Medics, Navy Corpsman, etc.) across different sub-specialties. Most recently, UC Health has launched a new sustainment and training platform at UCH Colorado Springs (Memorial Hospital) for active duty Army and Air Force emergency physicians and surgeons.
