Leadership Development Program

EMA is proud to host the Leadership Development Program. Each year, EMA selects a group of qualified individuals from within our organization to develop into our future leaders. Over the course of the year, participants will be exposed to the fundamental concepts in ED management, attend the ACEP Director’s Academy and assume an increasing leadership role.

These goals are the focus of an EMA provider.

Since 1991, we have experienced tremendous growth in our geographic footprint. We are proud that we have continued to recruit, develop and retain a talented group of emergency physicians who help us staff and run the very best emergency departments.

We now have over 20 active Directors and Assistant Directors providing site leadership to effectively manage the clinical and administrative aspects of each site. Some of this talent was cultivated from the front lines while others have naturally progressed into leadership roles in our organization.

Our Leadership Development Program and Administrative Fellowship programs have provided multiple opportunities for physicians to develop the tools and skills necessary to become the future leaders of our group.
