I am happy to announce that Dr. Eric Ernest has accepted a position as the next Regions EMS fellow starting summer 2013 through summer 2014. Dr. Ernest is currently completing his Emergency Medicine residency at the University of Nebraska where he also serves as an Assistant Medical Director for the Omaha and Bellevue Fire Departments. He holds a B.S. degree in Emergency Medical Services and has extensive experience as a field paramedic. Dr. Ernest has also been heavily involved in Creighton University EMS Education teaching the next generation of EMS providers. Please join me in extending a warm welcome to Dr. Ernest and his family!
Regions Hospital EMS fellowship began in 2010. Dr. Bjorn Peterson , our current fellow, is a graduate of the Regions Hospital EM residency and will complete his fellowship training in January 2014. EMS is now a board certified subspecialty of Emergency Medicine and the first board certification examination is anticipated in 2014. EMS fellowships will begin being accredited by the ACGME in 2013 and we expect our fellowship to qualify for this status. For more information see out fellowship website.
