The Department of Emergency Medicine at the American University of Beirut Medical Center (AUBMC) established two non-clinical fellowships in 2018: the Emergency Medicine Administrative Fellowship and the Emergency Medicine Education Fellowship.
Emergency Medicine Administrative Fellowship
The Emergency Medicine Administrative Fellowship is a 2-year program that aims at developing fellows for executive healthcare roles by providing experiential post-graduate training in operations, finance, strategic planning, risk management, emergency preparedness, quality improvement, and other areas of emergency medicine administration.
This non-clinical fellowship is divided into three components: clinical teaching component, completion of a master's program in Executive Masters in Business Administration that offers core curriculum content, and mentorship through participation in departmental/institutional administrative activities.
This fellowship will help build future leaders in emergency medicine who can contribute to building high quality service emergency departments across the country. By fostering mentorship between fellows and senior management, this non-clinical fellowship contributes to the profession by developing well-prepared health care professionals who are trained in various aspects of healthcare administration.
Emergency Medicine Education Fellowship
The Emergency Medicine non-clinical Education Fellowship is a 2-year program designed to develop EM graduates to become scholars and consultants in medical education. This program is ideal for graduates with strong interest in academics and it provides training in education methods, education research skills, simulation, and administration.
The non-clinical fellowship is divided into three components: clinical teaching component, completion of a master's program in education that offers core curriculum content, and mentorship through participation in departmental/institutional educational activities.
With increased interest in ACGME-I accreditation in Lebanon and the region and focus on improving the quality of medical education and continuous faculty development, this non-clinical fellowship will build compliance with accreditation standards through helping its graduates improve their skills and become part of a team of educational leaders who can work interdepartmentally and improve education at their institution and possibly be able to generate more profound effects at the national and regional levels.
