The CU Global EM Fellowship has a history of training emergency physician educators, implementors, and researchers to decrease health disparities for vulnerable populations in settings with limited health resources. We approach these challenges through a data-driven, social determinants of health (social EM) approach to ensure health equity and justice. We produce global health leaders who approach public health problem-solving using mixed methods, implementation science to impact the global health system strengthening and humanitarian programs, effective advocacy, and impact policy.
The CU Global EMF is a two-year program that combines in-depth clinical and public health work in low health-resource settings.
