Fellowship Training in Emergency Medicine Policy Research

The Center for Emergency Care Policy & Research (CECPR) provides a 2 year fellowship in health policy/health services research, which can be arranged on an individual basis for emergency physicians who have research interests related to the quality of emergency care, health policy, social media, public health, and access to care. The CECPR fellowship is a mentored research program, sponsored by the Department of Emergency Medicine in association with the Master's program in Health Policy. Fellows enter into an established 2 year fellowship training program at the University of Pennsylvania and benefit from structured research training in the form of coursework leading to Master of Science degree in Health Policy Research (MSHP), standing research in progress meetings, group leadership training, and an individualized career development curriculum. Our current CECPR fellow is Kristen Rising.
