Collaboration, scholarship, and development. 


Our medical education fellowship helps position fellows to become successful academic faculty. Publication is just one measure of this success. Brown's medical education fellows and faculty have collaborated to further the field of education scholarship, both within emergency medicine and beyond.

The following is just a sample of our work:
