Fellowships & Training

EM Fellowship

The Emergency Medicine Fellowship, a partnership between Relias and North Mississippi Medical Center, is a one-year intensive training curriculum designed to develop recent Family Practice or Internal Medicine graduates as emergency medicine physicians who might also work within our system as Emergency Medicine Providers upon completion of their fellowship training.

The fellow will rotate through the following rotations during their fellowship:

Month 1 – Orienting as an EM Physician
Month 2 – Emergency Airway/ Anesthesia
Month 3 – Trauma in the Emergency Department
Month 4 – Cardiology
Month 5 – Elective
Month 6 – Critical Care
Month 7 – EM OBGYN
Month 8 – Pediatric Emergency
Month 9 – Ortho Trauma
Month 10 – Radiology
Month 11 – EM Ophthalmology
Month 12 – Elective/ Board Prep

The Emergency Medicine Fellowship is led by Program Director Dr. Val Serio.

 

2106_RELIAS_21_VAL_SERIO_w1“As a full-time emergency physician, I have spent a significant amount of time bedside teaching nurses, midlevels, medical students, and anyone who is interested. I have an intense passion for sharing the knowledge and experience I have gained over the years. When my medical director, Dr. Johnsey, approached me about the concept of an Emergency Medicine fellowship, I was sold right away.

Our goal for the Fellowship here at North Mississippi Medical Center is to train the most qualified candidates to become the best emergency medicine physicians in the country. I have inquired and secured the full support of our entire emergency medicine physician group and of the medical staff all the way up to the highest levels of the administration.

I hope to use the curriculum we have designed here which include didactic sessions, emergency medicine shifts, and a variety of outside ED rotations to fill in the knowledge gap after an FP residency or an IM residency.

Our goal is that after their year with us, each graduate of the program can stand alone in any ED, large or small, and be able to handle any acute medical emergency that walks in the door.

I am greatly honored to be involved with this program, and I look forward to leading a group of emergency medicine physicians, into the fascinating world of Emergency Medicine.”
