UBC-BWH Emergency Medicine Leadership Fellowship


The UBC-BWH Emergency Medicine Leadership Fellowship at Brigham and Women’s Hospital will prepare residency trained Emergency Medicine specialists to become experts in Emergency Department leadership and management and to gain a broader understanding of health care policy, economics, and delivery systems. Program participants will develop expertise in emergency care delivery processes, fiscal management including budgeting, incentive programs and business development, interdepartmental relations, health policy as it relates to emergency care delivery, personnel management, and quality and safety initiatives—both at department and hospital levels. The program will also promote interdisciplinary collaboration, data management, complex decision-making, and negotiation skills. The program includes administrative processes related to clinical care and leadership responsibilities in a variety of settings including academic departments, community hospital departments, urgent care settings, and across regions or systems.



The overall goal of the program is to develop health care leaders from British Columbia who will become experts in emergency care delivery both at the institutional and system or regional level through a combination of practice, financial and management education, collaboration, and personal development. Each activity during the two-year program is targeted at accomplishing one or more of these goals.
