EMSC Scholars & Fellows Program

In an effort to grow future leaders who will continue to support and improve efforts to provide high-quality EMS care to children, the EMS for Children Innovation and Improvement Center (EIIC) is offering two opportunities for early career clinicians and health systems trainees: the EMSC Scholars Program and the EMSC Fellows Program. All clinicians (i.e., EMTs, paramedics, nurses, advanced practice providers, physicians, etc.) and graduate students or early career faculty within related fields (e.g. health policy, healthcare administration, and public health) are encouraged to apply now. Applications will be accepted until January 15, 2021.

The EMSC Scholars Program is a 1- to 2-year program during which early career clinicians will work alongside EIIC leaders to develop and implement a unique project focused on a key area of interest. EMSC scholars’ projects cross two or more domains of interest including advocacy, knowledge translation, knowledge dissemination, marketing and communications, prehospital pediatric readiness, pediatric readiness of emergency departments, quality improvement methodology, analytics, workforce development, health policy, healthcare administration, research, and value-based care. Scholars are expected to commit 2 to 4 hours per week.

The EMSC Fellows Program is designed to support trainees and early career professionals with an opportunity to engage in EIIC-led efforts to better understand systems-based strategies for improvement. Fellows are invited to serve on national steering committees to better understand the work of EMSC stakeholders. Fellows will be assigned to a single domain of focus and one or more EIIC mentors who will provide ongoing support and opportunities for participation. Appointments are for 1 to 2 years, with an expected time commitment of 2 to 4 hours per month.
