EM-CCM Fellowship Education
The University of Maryland Medical Center is a quaternary referral center serving the highest acuity patients in the Mid-Atlantic region. Given its regional clinical expertise in a wide array of specialties, as well as its location in inner-city Baltimore, UMMC provides CCM fellows excellent training in the management of complex medical problems. Additionally, high-level bench and clinical research opportunities abound for fellows in several areas of medicine.

With the recent ABIM-ABEM agreement to allow board certification of EM-trained physicians following completion of a 2-year ABIM-approved CCM fellowship, we are excited to offer this excellent training opportunity!
