Administration Fellowship

The Department of Emergency Medicine Administration Fellowship can be tailored to individual needs and may include any of the following experiences.

 Innovations Academy

Founded by former residents: Dr. Andrew Berg, Dr. Paul Trinquero, Department Chair, Dr. James Adams, Residency Director, Dr. John Bailitz, and faculty, Dr. Ted Koutouzis, the Innovation Academy is a project-focused development group aimed at designing novel products or procedures that improve patient outcome through more efficient healthcare delivery and risk reduction. 


The Academy for Quality and Safety Improvement (AQSI) is a professional development program with overarching goal to develop future leaders by equipping them with the skills and tools necessary to lead meaningful change. The program includes QI formal training and a team project. AQSI participants are selected through a competitive application process that occurs in each region. Visit the AQSI website to learn more.

NUEM has a strong tradition of resident-led projects being selected for AQSI. Recent projects have included creating sepsis alerts, improving concussion follow up, and decreasing frequency of opioid prescriptions. 


January 2018 marked the kickoff to NUEM’s collaboration with the Kellogg School of Management to create a novel McGaw Resident MD/MBA program. Qualified residents interested in pursuing scholarship and careers in health systems administration may be able to begin earning their MBA during residency as a part of a flexible curriculum designed specifically to meet the needs of tomorrow’s healthcare leaders.
