UCSF Fresno Wilderness Medicine Fellowship


Welcome to the UCSF Fresno Wilderness Medicine Fellowship Program


The fellowship is a one-year program with the option to extend for two years for individuals who wish to pursue a Masters in Public Health. The fellow will work clinically as a junior faculty member at Community Regional Medical Center (CRMC) – the 3rd busiest Emergency Department in California. Eight, 8-hour shifts per month are expected of the fellow. This schedule affords the fellow plenty of time to participate in required curricular activities that develop the cognitive knowledge and skill sets expected of a Wilderness Medicine Fellow, as well as time to complete a research or scholarly project expected of all Fellows. A wide variety of experiences are available during the fellowship, yet the curriculum is designed to be flexible to allow each individual the opportunity to explore the areas of wilderness medicine that interest them the most.
