Why New Jersey EMS Fellowship: I chose the New Jersey EMS Fellowship
because I wanted to go to a program that exposed me to all aspects
within EMS. Being a resident at NBI, I was able to see how the
fellowship improve every year and appreciate the innovative treatment
modalities that were being brought out in the field. The NJ EMS
fellowship was the only fellowship I found that would give me the best
opportunity to work with different federal agencies and organizations
in hopes to achieve my goal of being an EMS physician.
