The EDPMA Fellowship is an educational opportunity that identifies and cultivates future leaders in the business of emergency medicine and helps them further their knowledge, experience, and exposure to the highest level of leadership in the business. The fellowship program will provide additional training, education, and networking opportunities in healthcare business, management and advocacy, and will cover much of the travel cost related to this additional training. Applications will be opening this fall.
The selected candidate must commit to the future success of EDPMA’s mission by regularly attending EDPMA Board of Director meetings along with EDPMA in-person and virtual events which include the Solutions Summit, Leadership Lobby Days on Capitol Hill, and EDPMA workshops, and be an active member of an EDPMA committee. This commitment includes meeting with EDPMA members, staff, and their consultants to enhance their education in the business of emergency medicine and advocacy, leveraging their professional growth while enhancing the reputation of the association, and networking with other leaders in the business. The training will include education around the revenue cycle management (RCM) process, including data analytics, billing, coding, payor behavior, and reimbursement that can be leveraged for advocacy at the local, state, and federal level. The fellowship will support one fellow in 2023 for a commitment of twelve months. EDPMA plans on expanding the program to support additional fellows in upcoming years. As part of the program, the fellow is responsible for submitting a white paper or presenting on a pressing emergency medicine topic at the Solutions Summit.
