Administrative Fellowship

Institution Application

Approval of an Emergency Medicine Administrative Fellowship program is contingent upon a review of the institutional environment, current members of the faculty fellowship team, success of prior graduates and proposed curriculum for future fellows. Approved institutions must have an ACGME-approved emergency medicine residency program and evidence of strong support for administrative programs and leadership development in place. At a minimum, programs must demonstrate intradepartmental collaboration of the fellowship program with administrators, clinicians, educators, and researchers. Extra departmental collaboration with other administrative programs in the institution is highly encouraged.  If such extra departmental collaboration is not available at an applying institution, careful attention will be given by reviewers to ensure that other means to obtain experience in hospital and/or health system collaboration are in place. For approval, a fellowship program must require concurrent or prior master’s level training such as an MBA, MHA or equivalent for its fellows. Finally, scholarly activity of fellows is highly encouraged and programs must demonstrate access to mentorship in this area. Institutions must meet the criteria as set forth in the Administrative Fellowship RFA.

  • Application fee is $400 for the first 3-year cycle. The renewal application fee is $500 and applications are approved for a 5-year period. Please make check payable to "SAEM" and reference "Administrative Fellowship Application."
