Palmetto Health/University of South Carolina School of Medicine

History

The mission of the Department of Emergency Medicine EMS Fellowship is to develop highly motivated emergency medicine physicians into educators and leaders in the field of pre-hospital medicine and medical direction. The program allows fellows to train with core faculty who are nationally recognized leaders in EMS and have years of experience in medical direction of both ground and air medical programs. The EMS fellow will be an integral component in the pre-hospital setting from both a ground and air standpoint.
