The Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Nebraska Medical Center is excited to announce a two-year, non-ACGME fellowship in Medical Education, Technology, and Innovation (METI). The goal of the fellowship is to provide a unique, structured training experience that prepares motivated clinician-educators to integrate sound learning principles with digital competency in order to lead, innovate, and transform the clinical learning environment. Hands-on structured and customizable experiences will be offered as month-long 'rotations' and longitudinal projects that partner with UNMC's Department of Emergency Medicine residency and student clerkship, the UNMCGME Department, UNMC College of Medicine, iEXCEL (Interprofessional Experiential Center for Enduring Learning) initiative and visualization hub, E-Learning Center, Sorrell Simulation Center, Davis Global Center, and the University of Nebraska-Omaha's Peter Kiewit Institute. Fellows will obtain a Master's in Health Professions Teaching & Technology through the UNMC College of Allied Health. Fellows are encouraged to choose a 'track' (currently offered between GME, UME, and Sim/IPE, with plans to develop a concentrated Design/Innovation track in the future) to allow them concentrate and customize their second year in order to hone their skills and develop their niche. While the first of its kind, this fellowship is designed to fulfill Education Scholarship Fellowship standards set by the Society of Academic Emergency Medicine.
