Academic Junior Attending

The Role:

The Academic Junior Attending Year (Fourth Year) is an opportunity for graduates of the BIDMC HAEMR program to remain in the Emergency Department for a year after graduation, in a unique role that combines clinical responsibilities with further training in a specialized area of Academic or Administrative interest. This position is guaranteed for any graduating resident who wishes to take advantage of this program. Participants in the fourth year work clinically as junior attendings in the emergency department at BIDMC and our affiliated hospitals (average of 22 clinical hours per week), which provides an opportunity for growth and development as a new attending. At the same time, this limited clinical schedule allows for protected time which is used to complete an individual academic or administrative project of their choice. During this time, participants may also choose to complete a one year Master's in Public Health through the Harvard School of Public Health. On average, 25% of the graduating class chooses to stay on for this junior attending year.

The following projects have been completed by fouth year junior attendings:

  • Basic science research
  • MPH in statistics and epidemiology
  • Residency administration
  • Healthcare quality research
  • Postgraduate medical education
  • Sports medicine fellowship
  • Information technology fellowship 
  • International Emergency Medicine
  • Bedside ultrasonography
  • Simulation

During that time she has been involved in a number of international research projects, training courses, and have the opportunity to network with leaders in global health at conferences around the globe. With the help of her mentors at BIDMC as well as HHI, she hopes to develop her niche in the field of global health during the upcoming year.
