Emergency Medicine Medical Education and Technology Fellowship

About the Program:

We are excited to introduce the Prisma Health-Upstate Emergency Medicine Fellowship in Medical Education and Technology (MedEdTech) as the first of it’s kind in Greenville, SC and one of a handful of similar education fellowships in the country! Our emphasis is on educating the modern learner using innovative teaching strategies, educational technology, gamification techniques, and best practices in multimedia slide design.

The clinical opportunities in Greenville are diverse, including Greenville Memorial hospital which is a primarily academic, tertiary care level 1 trauma center with >100,000 ED visits annually, as well as 6 busy primarily community sites in the surrounding communities. We have 10 PGY1-3 residents annually as well as medical students from the University of South Carolina, Greenville School of Medicine. Fellows will participate in teaching opportunities across the spectrum from didactic sessions to on-shift teaching to asynchronous teaching supplemented by a robust curriculum to learn the theory behind education.

This is a two-year fellowship which offers a funded Masters’ of Education as well as funding to attend the American College of Emergency Physicians’ (ACEP) Teaching Fellowship. The first year will emphasis core content in medical education and provide an introduction to the four areas of medical education: graduate medical education, undergraduate medical education, continuing medical education, and faculty development, as well as an introduction to educational technology. The second year will allow the fellow to focus on a project of their choosing, as well as the ability to explore special interests in education.
