The overarching goal is to create an educational experience that informs and innovates the fellow across a broad sphere of the medical education structure in preparation to step into an academic career as a life-long educator.

Undergraduate Medical Education

It is so more than just teaching medical students emergency medicine…

After fellowship graduation, could you envision yourself as an EM clerkship director, small group facilitator, medical school course director, curriculum developer, or working your way up to a dean?

We can. Our UME track will provide you multiple hands-on educational opportunities with our diverse UME faculty.

Graduate Medical Education

If you always wanted to work in a EM residency program and mold the next generation of residents, our Med-Ed fellowship will prepare you for this calling.

Your career path may include an assortment of educational positions in residency leadership positions, Med-Ed fellowship director, curriculum developer, Vice Chair/Chair of Education, or DIO in your career arc.

Through an intensive blend of GME activities, advising, meetings and direct committee work, we will equip you for these career possibilities.

Innovation in Education

How do you learn to be an innovator in education?

We place a premium of engaging with our local neighborhood and better understanding the social determinants of health to improve the health of our Newark community. Fellows will gain mastery in teaching and continually integrating these crucial concepts back to your learners.

What skills are necessary in your educational toolkit?

During the fellowship, time will be provided to learn and develop concrete skillsets such as curriculum development, simulation instruction, learning management systems (LMS) for coursework, and social media/podcasting capabilities.
