InnovationPhoto of US Acute Care Solutions' building

The face of emergency medicine will change in the next two decades as clinicians will increasingly work in non-hospital settings with telemedicine, home care, and increasingly use novel technology to reach patients before they come to the ED after they have gone home.  The USACS Fellowship in Clinical Innovation provides a 1-year, mentored experience for budding leaders who are interesting in making a career in innovation in acute and emergency care.  The fellowship is “virtual” meaning it can be done from any USACS clinical site.  Fellows have a national role in USACS and are mentored by the Chief Medical Officer team, participate in innovation projects, writing and educational opportunities, and have opportunities for implementation of innovation as well as mentorship in their home-base ED.  In addition, fellows participate in a longitudinal curriculum with focused readings and learning on innovation, as well as national USACS programs (efficiency & patient experience academies).
