Dr. Eric Ernest, the newest Regions EMS fellow, has begun his ACGME accredited fellowship with us on July 8, 2013. Dr. Ernest earned a B.S. in Emergency Medical Services from Creighton University and then continued with his education at Creighton University College of Medicine, graduating in 2010. He has completed the Emergency Medicine residency program at the University of Nebraska as well as an EMS elective month at the University of New Mexico. He has street experience as a Paramedic in the state of Nebraska. During residency Dr. Ernest served as the assistant medical director for the Bellevue and Omaha fire departments. He was highly recruited to our fellowship and we are excited to have him joining us at Regions EMS!
As an EMS fellow with Regions, Dr. Ernest is an authorized medical control physician and may provide on-scene and on-line medical control via MRCC. He has a scene response vehicle and will be spending 40 hours per week responding to calls with our EMS services. At the completion of his one year fellowship (July, 2014) he will be prepared to sit for the American Board of Emergency Medicine sponsored board certification exam in Emergency Medical Services.
Please distribute this bio and picture to your crews as I’m sure they will be meeting him in person or on the radio very soon!
