Fellowship Program Director’s Message

Northwestern University is proud of its long tradition of national leadership in emergency medicine education and our state-of-the-art care for acutely ill or injured patients in the greater Chicago area.”

David Salzman, MD, MEd
Medical Education Fellowship Director
Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine


We continue to honor this rich legacy by providing today’s emergency medicine physicians with opportunities to expand their skills in our medical education fellowship. It is my pleasure to provide this brief introduction to our exceptional training program.

This two-year fellowship provides comprehensive formal training in medical education scholarship and ample experiential opportunities to assimilate practical skills necessary for effective medical education leadership and administration. Clinical shifts in the Emergency Department and leadership roles within our medical student clerkship and residency program allow fellows to apply new skills in real time. The vast network of educators and resources at both Northwestern University and the Feinberg School of Medicine gives fellows access to leaders in education research and scholarship.

Fellows will have the opportunity to learn, practice and create while focusing on undergraduate and graduate education methods, curriculum development, education research, adult learning theory, assessment tool design, simulation and immersive learning, continuing medical education, social media and medical education, residency program leadership and faculty development. Our curriculum allows for flexibility so that fellows to customize their experience to fit their interests and goals.
