Department of Emergency Medicine, Division of EMS and Disaster Medicine

EMS Faculty Positions

Kalamazoo, Michigan

Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine (WMed) is recruiting EMS faculty members to support the EMS Fellowship Program and the expanding activities of the Division of EMS and Disaster Medicine. WMed is one of the newest medical schools in the U.S. and has one of the largest emergency medicine residency programs in the nation. WMed's EMS Fellowship Program was among the first ACGME-accredited fellowships. WMed residents and fellows are integrally involved in the countywide EMS system, with dedicated resident and fellow EMS response vehicles.

The WMed Division of EMS and Disaster Medicine provides a wide variety of services including medical direction, education, research, and healthcare preparedness. The Kalamazoo County Medical Control Authority (KCMCA) is the state-designated agency responsible for coordinating all aspects of the countywide EMS system. KCMCA is housed within the Division, allowing for full integration between WMed and the EMS system. The Division houses the 5th District Medical Response Coalition (5DMRC), a 9-county consortium of hospitals, EMS, public health, emergency management, and others dedicated to cross-jurisdictional, interdisciplinary disaster planning and response. The 5DMRC was designated by the CDC as a model for preparedness and collaboration. 5DMRC and the Division operate a mobile medical field unit on behalf of the State of Michigan. The Division additionally coordinates Michigan's National Disaster Life Support Program activities. The State EMS Data Manager is housed within the Division, making access to over 8 million EMS records readily available for research and quality improvement.

The EMS faculty positions will be involved in a wide range of activities within the Division. We are specifically looking for individuals qualified to serve as Fellowship Program Director or Associate Program Director. Ample protected time is available for faculty to pursue additional opportunities in local EMS medical direction, regional healthcare preparedness, special operations (including tactical EMS), and research. Applicants should be highly motivated to pursue a career in academic emergency medicine, ideally having experience in teaching, research, and/or grant-writing. Applicants must be board certified in Emergency Medicine and be sub-board certified (or eligible) in Emergency Medical Services. Completion of an EMS fellowship is desirable but exceptionally qualified individuals will be considered based on experience (and sub-specialty Board eligibility or certification).

As a new medical school, WMed is an exciting environment to pursue an academic career. WMed has a large, state-of-the art Simulation Center, extensive resources to support research, and abundant opportunities for teaching students, residents, and EMS providers. Kalamazoo's two hospitals serve as regional tertiary care centers for southwest Michigan, serving a population of ~1 million. Kalamazoo is a wonderful city, located midway between Chicago and Detroit and a short distance from Lake Michigan. The Kalamazoo Promise is a nationally renowned program in which graduates of Kalamazoo Public Schools receive free tuition to attend public and private colleges in Michigan. Michigan provides extensive entertainment and recreational activities, including great opportunities to enjoy the outdoors.
