Fellowship - Cullman Regional Medical Center
- Focus: The North Alabama Emergency Medicine Fellowship provides a unique opportunity for primary care physicians to become board certified in emergency medicine. The program is recognized by the American Academy of Emergency Physicians.
- Fellowship Director: Mark Christensen, MD - [email protected]
- Clinical duties include 12-14 shifts per month in the ED. Fellows participate in didactic lecture series each Thursday, where they learn high-impact topics to prepare them for EM Boards and future careers as EM physicians capable of working at any emergency room in the country.
- We supplement didactic lectures with longitudinal Board Prep throughout the year so you will succeed on exam day.
- Special topics courses are scattered throughout the fellowship as well, such as an ENT skills course, ortho and splinting course, dental emergency course, and multiple ultrasound courses to name a few.
- Fellows also get to experience our unique fellowship seminars – special teaching opportunities such as our Ballistics Injuries Seminar at a large firearms center, a NASCAR Experience at the Talledega Speedway to learn about MVAs and traumas; a Snake Bite Symposium taught by wilderness medicine experts at the Birmingham Zoo, and multiple EMS and critical care ride-alongs, just to name a few. The curriculum also includes instruction on essential emergency medicine procedures, airway management, and ED bedside ultrasound.
- Outcome: Fellowship graduates will qualify for written and oral exams to receive board certification in emergency medicine (BCEM) by the American Board of Physician Specialists
