Sample Fellowship Rotation Schedule

Clinical Training in the Emergency Department - Clinical training occurs during the three fellowship years. Assignments in the EDTC during the first 3-6 months of fellowship are "protected" with the emphasis on developing the knowledge and skills necessary to practice independently and to supervise. These fellow shifts are supervised by the attending EDTC physician. As the fellow progresses during the first year, supervision of house staff and students, and independent practice working with an on-site attending physician is emphasized. During the second year, the fellow is assigned some shifts as the single attending-level physician with off-site attending physician back-up. Third-year fellows practice as independent attending physicians with a mixture of on-site and off-site back-up available.

Vacation - 4 weeks/year, to be taken during electives, research months, or rotations in CHW-EDTC. Two weeks conference time per year is allotted.
