Emergency Medicine Fellowship
Join a program designed to teach family medicine graduates the needed skill to provide emergency medicine to rural communities.
St. Anthony North Family Medicine is offering a one-year emergency medicine fellowship in partnership with the USACS emergency medicine physicians in the Centura Health system. This fellowship teaches family medicine graduates the skills necessary to provide rural emergency medicine coverage. Fellows work in emergency medicine facilities at St. Anthony Hospital, a level 1 trauma center. Some additional time is spent at St. Anthony North and St. Anthony Summit, and possibly at a rural affiliate hospital if there is availability. An emergency medicine physician serves as the clinical director for the fellowship and oversees the fellows’ progress in medical knowledge and clinical skills. Fellows spend 32 hours a week in the emergency department and four to six in the outpatient continuity clinic. Fellows are encouraged to maintain obstetrics and medicinal skills with five inpatient attending with the residents at St. Anthony North. Applications are accepted from all graduates of ACGME/AOA accredited family medicine programs.
"We extend the healing ministry of Christ by caring for those who are ill and by nurturing the health of the people in our communities."
About Greg Wittenburg

Why he chose this program
This program was an easy choice for Greg because it offers robust training in emergency medicine while supporting the practice of full-scope family medicine — acute care, inpatient medicine, outpatient medicine, and obstetrics. The program also offers the opportunity to train in diverse environments, from tertiary care centers in Denver to more rural hospitals in Colorado and Kansas.
