The purpose of this post-graduate fellowship is to expose, train and immerse APPs to the vast and fast-paced environment that is Emergency Medicine. The physician EM residency at Denver Health and The University of Colorado Department of Emergency Medicine is one of the oldest EM residencies in the country and is considered a premier, flagship residency.
The EM APP residency at The University of Colorado has the privilege of shared resources with this residency including facilities, conferences and lectures, and faculty who have been trained in a variety of fellowships (including US, Toxicology, Global Health, Wilderness Medicine, Critical Care, Climate Change, and Administration).
Our vision is to also become a premier residency for APPs in Emergency Medicine. This curriculum is an 18-month program that combines focused emergency medicine rotations off-service rotations. The off-service rotations include orthopedics & sports medicine, Internal Medicine, Critical Care Medicine, and Pediatric Emergency Medicine.
The fellowship will combine hands-on, ED-based learning, simulation and didactic lectures to impart knowledge and the skills that are required to be a successful emergency medicine APP.
Attendance at the ED’s weekly case conference which is followed by several lectures will occur on Wednesdays and will be mandatory during the fellowship.
In addition, fellows will attend monthly simulations where they will have the opportunity to get hands-on experience and practice in procedures such as intubations and central venous catheter placement.
The didactic portion of the fellowship is made up of a series of monthly emergency medicine-based lectures. This interactive, lecture-based learning is designed to supplement the hands-on experience and exposure during the fellowship.
Applications are due July 31st.
