Emergency Medicine Fellowship

Join Our Team

Monroe Clinic offers an Emergency Medicine Fellowship program for family physicians who desire further training in rural/suburban emergency medicine.  Fellowship graduates have the ability to become board-certified in emergency medicine by the American Board of Physician Specialties (ABPS), the organization that provides accreditation for the program.  This fellowship training allows a family physician to sit for the ABPS Board Certification in Emergency Medicine (BCEM).  Fellows who complete the fellowship are strongly encouraged to take the board exam.
