Our Global Sites
The Division of Global Emergency Medicine partners with Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá, Colombia. Residents spend half days in the busy urban emergency department of San Ignacio Hospital and half days in spanish language immersion classes. In addition, the division collaborates with the Ministry of Health, Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, ASCOFAME: the national dean's council, and the national medical student association on several research initiatives to improve emergency care nationwide.
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
