Browning Completes Emergency Medicine Fellowship
TUPELO, Miss.—John Browning, M.D., recently became the first graduate of the Emergency Medicine Fellowship at North Mississippi Medical Center, a partnership between Relias Healthcare and NMMC.
The one-year intensive training curriculum is designed to develop recent family practice or internal medicine graduates as emergency medicine physicians. Dr. Browning rotated through emergency airway management and anesthesia, trauma, cardiology, critical care, emergency OB/GYN, pediatric emergency, orthopedic trauma, radiology, emergency ophthalmology and other specialties during the program.
Dr. Browning received his bachelor’s degree in history and psychology from Tulane University in New Orleans, and his master’s degree in psychology from the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg. He earned his medical degree from the University of Mississippi School of Medicine in Jackson and completed residency training at the NMMC Family Medicine Residency Center in Tupelo.
“As a full-time emergency physician, I have spent a significant amount of time bedside teaching nurses, mid-level providers, medical students and anyone who is interested,” said Val Serio, D.O., who leads the Emergency Medicine Fellowship. “I have an intense passion for sharing the knowledge and experience I have gained over the years.”
Dr. Serio says the goal for NMMC’s program is to train the most qualified candidates to become the best emergency medicine physicians in the country. “Our goal is that after their year with us, each graduate of the program can stand alone in any Emergency Department, large or small, and be able to handle any acute medical emergency that walks in the door,” he added.
Dr. Browning is now employed full time at West Point Medical Clinic and Urgent Care and also works part-time in the NMMC-Tupelo Emergency Department.
