Emergency Medicine Fellowships

Finding the Right Fit

The BerbeeWalsh Department of Emergency Medicine educates, mentors, and develops future leaders in Emergency Medicine, whether individuals devote their efforts to advancing emergency prehospital care, research, public health, or public policy. We are collaborative across disciplines, specialties, health systems, and even countries, and we work toward our mission within a professional environment that supports and elevates the individual while aiming to build a sense of community and purpose.

We do all this in a vibrant, picturesque city—voted the #1 best place to live in the U.S. the last two years in a row—and located in one of the best states in which to practice medicine.

Success in Academic Medicine

To support individuals in navigating the early stage of their career and the transition from resident to attending faculty, we offer a bimonthly Success in Academics lecture series designed specifically for fellows and first-year faculty to gain insights into the world of academic medicine.

Presented by Department of Emergency Medicine faculty, these lectures cover topics such as time management, academic productivity, financial literacy, burnout and resiliency, to help you grow professionally and academically.

Our Success in Academics lecture series offers more than quick-hitting tips and practical know-how for early-career physicians. It’s an extension of our enduring commitment to mentorship and holistic investment in individual success. See what some past fellows have said about the lecture series:

“This lecture series was a big part of why I chose to come to UW for my fellowship training. I like that the department wants [fellows] to succeed, and this series highlights this commitment.”

“In all my training, not once have I received a lecture on time management, and I really appreciated this.”

“I was looking for a new framework, and this lecture series offered me a manageable solution.”
