Program Description

Welcome to the San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education Consortium Military Emergency Medical Services and Disaster Medicine Fellowship. We are one of only three joint EMS/Disaster medicine fellowships in the world, and the only one that includes a Master’s in Public Health. In addition, we are the largest EMS fellowship program in the nation, and the only one housed within the DOD. We believe that it is our mission is to cultivate exceptional physician leaders who are unwaveringly committed to excellence in prehospital (and thus battlefield) medicine. We strive to equip our fellows with the knowledge, skills, and leadership qualities necessary to stand as the vanguard of medical care in the most challenging and demanding environments, ensuring the highest standard of care for not only our armed forces but also our civilian populations during times of crisis.

Our program is a tri-service, 2-year program at Brooke Army Medical Center. Our fellows perform their prehospital duties in and around San Antonio, Texas—the 7th largest city in the U.S. We work closely with the civilian EMS fellowship located at University of Texas Health San Antonio to provide medical direction for the San Antonio Fire Department and other regional agencies. The state of Texas allows for delegated practice to our medics, which ensures that we are always on the cutting edge of pre-hospital medicine. Additionally, we work closely with the Southwest Texas Regional Advisory Committee (STRAC), a unique regional entity that unites diverse and competing health care organizations into a cohesive system with the singular focus of creating patient-centered regional emergency response systems. Learning the ins and outs of this “system of systems” enables you to acquire best practices to take with you back to the line.

Through a rigorous curriculum, hands-on training, and exposure to real-world prehospital and disaster scenarios, our fellowship equips our EMS physicians with the skills and mindset required to excel as leaders in prehospital medicine. We are dedicated to producing graduates who not only meet the highest standards of medical care but also serve as beacons of hope and healing in times of crisis. Together, we stand prepared to make a profound and lasting impact on the future of military medicine and disaster response.
