Global Health Fellowship

Global Health Fellowship

For Emergency Medicine graduates interested in the field of global medicine, the Department of Emergency Medicine is proud to offer a 3+1 fellowship in Global Health. This one-year fellowship is designed to develop skills that will help advance the field of emergency medicine in resource-poor areas and lead fellows on a career path in global health. Individual program emphasis will be determined by the fellow’s areas of interest and may include clinical care, capacity-building, teaching, or research.

During the year, fellows will work closely with the fellowship director to develop and implement a project tied to their interests. Fellows will gain experience in the logistics of working in resource-poor settings and a greater understanding of the determinants of health.

Fellows will also be involved in ongoing global health resident education in the Department of Emergency Medicine and will participate in longitudinal resident didactics, pre-departure orientation, and may choose to be involved in other resident-led projects.

Global Health Fellows will work a limited number of clinical shifts and will spend the remainder of their time involved in ongoing education and practical global health experiences.

Interested applicants should contact Dr. Jessica Schmidt, Fellowship Director, to request more information.
