The program has established clinical, research and educational opportunities in Haiti and Ghana. These are focused on sustainability, partnership with local institutions and local impact. Unique aspects of the fellowship include a focus on critical care medicine and resuscitation, as well as prehospital emergency care systems development. The program has five faculty members with a wide array of experience and other subspecialties. The program director is also fellowship-level trained in Ultrasound, Critical Care Medicine and EMS. Both clinical and research projects with a focus in these areas are possible. The program has a strong focus on global health research, with opportunities to join existing projects or develop own projects.
