EMS and Disaster Medicine Fellowship

We are currently recruiting a fellow for our EMS and Disaster Medicine fellowship program that begins July, 2011. The EMS and Disaster Medicine fellowship is designed to prepare emergency physicians to assume responsibilities as a medical director of an EMS system of any size or to accept a position as a senior leader in a disaster preparedness organization. One of the strengths of our program is our partnership with the Houston Fire Department (HFD), the third largest fire and EMS organization in the country. The fellow will serve as an Assistant Medical Director for HFD and will fully participate in all aspects of EMS medical direction, including field response. Disaster education will come from both didactic and experiential opportunities. For further questions, please contact Keith Gates, MD, at (713) 500-7143.
