BACKGROUND: The authors describe a Joint Fellowship Curriculum instituted for emergency medicine fellows in diverse fellowships. The curriculum is based on commonalities established among the varying fellowships offered within their Department of Emergency Medicine. Fellowships included in the curriculum development include Disaster/Emergency Medical Services, International Emergency Medicine, Health Policy, Ultrasonography, and Medical Toxicology. OBJECTIVES: The focus of this educational activity is to promote the development of the fellow into an expert within their field of specialization. DISCUSSION: Recognizing that topics such as scholarly activities, career development, clinical practice of medicine, business of medicine, and personal development are universally applicable to a variety of emergency medicine fellowships, the curriculum attempts to provide uniform instruction. The quality and applicability of this instruction was assessed and found to have been very well received by the participating fellows. CONCLUSION: The authors encourage academic emergency medicine departments with a number of fellowship training opportunities to consider providing such a uniform curriculum of instruction as well.
