This fellowship is designed to prepare emergency physicians to effectively participate in global health by providing training in the foundations of emergency medicine education, emergency systems development, humanitarian assistance, disaster management, community and public health, travel and ﬁeld medicine, and program management. Fellows will be trained in global emergency medicine concepts, gain field experience in application of these concepts, and develop research skills necessary to become an academic clinician with a specialty in global emergency medicine. Fellows will be expected to develop a project of their own over the period of the fellowship, including project concept, development, administration, evaluation, and funding, if applicable.
This fellowship is one or two years in length depending on an optional advanced degree (e.g. MPH). Consideration will be given to applicants seeking a one-year position if said applicant already holds a relevant advanced degree or has significant field experience within global emergency medicine. In addition to the MPH, the fellow will receive a formalized curriculum and receive mentorship from the core faculty of the department’s Global Emergency Care Initiative. Applicants must be board eligible/certified in Emergency Medicine. Preference is given to graduates of four-year residency programs and graduates of three-year programs who have had some clinical experience after residency.
