Associate Scholar Program

The University of Iowa Department of Emergency Medicine offers Associate Scholar programs in Medical Education, Research, and Social Medicine for graduates of ACGME-accredited Emergency Medicine residency programs. Applicants must be board-eligible or board-certified by the American Board of Emergency Medicine.

The Associate Scholar will work clinically in the capacity of an attending physician in the Emergency Department while pursuing training in one of the disciplines available in the Associate Scholar program. This is not a permanent faculty appointment.

Upon successful completion of this two-year appointment, the Associate Scholar in Emergency Medicine will earn a certification of completion of training and will have had the opportunity to earn a Master's degree as a component of the training program.  Candidates with pertinent experience and a related Master's degree may be considered for a one year program.
