Our Global Sites
In partnership with Pontificia Universidad Javeriana and the Ministry of Health, the Division of Global Emergency Medicine at Brown University is working collaboratively to complete a baseline assessment and pilot the WHO Basic Emergency Care course to medical students and other frontline providers who work with vulnerable populations across the country. In addition, the Division of Global Emergency Medicine coordinates with San Ignacio Hospital, one of the busiest in the country, to facilitate training experiences for visiting residents and fellows, while also brining Colombian trainees to the US for educational exchange.
Training & Mentoring
As part of our Global Emergency Medicine fellowship, fellows can choose to earn an advanced degree in the following: Masters of Public Health (MPH) Masters of Science in Clinical and Translational Research (MSc) Masters of Global Public Health (MSc) Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (DTMH): Latin America or East Africa Fellows who already possess one or more of these degrees may opt out of the degree requirement at the discretion of the fellowship director. Other educational opportunities such as the certificate in clinical and translational research as well as structured courses are offered through the School of Public Health for those applicants with advanced degrees.
In addition to the advanced degree program, fellows will participate in a dedicated Humanitarian Emergency / Disaster Certification course, such as the Health Emergencies in Large Populations (HELP) course through the International Committee of the Red Cross and World Health Organization and/or the Harvard Humanitarian Response Intensive Course (HRIC). Fellows will have the opportunity to work with the Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Studies. We are pleased to announce a new online tool to support global emergency medicine fellowship instructional needs via a portal called Canvas.
- Full tuition related to a formal degree program as well as costs related to travel during the fellowship will be covered. Cost related to the Humanitarian Response Intensive Course and HELP course are also fully paid. An Additional $3,000 will be provided as a professional allowance.
- Fellows will receive a Brown University Appointment
All fellows hold an appointment at the Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Studies (hyperlink that text to this website: https://watson.brown.edu/chrhs/) within the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University where they have the opportunity to work with interdisciplinary partners to conduct and research and education on pressing global human rights and humanitarian challenges.
