YEMD Fellowship

Fellowship update

EUSEM YEMD Section is currently establishing a Network for "Trainee Exchange Fellowship Programme". The aim of "Trainee Exchange Fellowship Programme" is to provide a wide range of excellent training for emergency medicine trainees at hosting centres across Europe within the EUSEM member countries. Different categories of "Trainee Exchange Fellowship Programmes" are proposed: (1) clinical fellowship, (2) clinical research work, (3) non-clinical research work, and (4) non-clinical observership. Trainees are encouraged to visit recognised centres, to spend sufficient time there in order to gain experience and return home with knowledge and skills to pass onto their peers. In duration, they can either enrol short term (1 - 2 weeks) or long term (2 - 6 months) to ONLY ONE "Trainee Exchange Fellowship Programme" within recognised hosting centres. Each hosting centre will determine the frequency of trainee application intake, in accordance to their capacity and local policy. Criteria have been established to allow the EUSEM YEMD to identify the best and most promising trainees and support them with limited number of scholarships to partially cover the cost of travel expenses, accommodation and learning in these centres. At present, we are in a process of building up a dedicated "Trainee Exchange Fellowship Programme" Web-based Platform, covering essential information with regards to application process and hosting centres information.

Sema Avci
I graduated from emergency medicine residency programme in 2016 in Ankara Dışkapı Research and Training Hospital, in Turkey which is one of the most important centers for pediatric trauma in Ankara, Turkey.  In my residency period, I underwent focused assessment with sonography for trauma (FAST) education, and ECG, and echocardiography education specifically. I experienced intensive care unit for four months as well. Now, I am working as an academic member in Emergency Department of Amasya University Medical Faculty about two months. I am curious about Critical Care Medicine in Emergency Department. 

I am honoured to be selected for this year’s 2018 EuSEM Fellowship for Young Emergency Physicians programme. I want to improve my knowledge and skills on Critical Care in Medicine. After this fellowship programme I aim at studying on this topic in depth in my country, Turkey.

I am a fourth year resident at the Department of Emergency Medicine, University Hospital Centre Zagreb, in Croatia. Throughout my Emergency Medicine Residency Training Programme, I have set myself two primary goals: to attain the best possible education and to share the gained knowledge amidst my colleagues. The hospital I am training in provides medical care of complex adult and paediatric cases in the field of Critical Care Emergency Medicine. Thus, training here has given me a solid knowledge basis within the scope of Critical Care Emergency Medicine. In the act of being Instructor of the European Trauma Course Organisation, I am regularly involved in education of emergency medicine enthusiasts on trauma related pearls. I am honoured to be selected for this year's YEMD Fellowship, which I believe will further build my competencies, as well as deepen my understanding in one of the most dynamic fields of emergency medicine.
