1. Clinical: Fellows work as attending physicians at LIJ Medical Center. In this role, fellows will be responsible for treating emergency department patients and supervising residents and advanced practice practitioners. Our fellows work approximately 20 hours a week clinically. In addition, there is paid vacation time, a CME time allowance, and PTO for holidays worked.
2. Academic: Fellows complete a Masters in Public Health over the course of the 2-year program. Recently, our fellows have found the online MPH program through the University of Massachusetts to be the best fit for the fellowship. All coursework is done online, so schedule conflicts with clinical shifts and global health field work is not an issue. Most students in the program are health professionals with clinical experience, leading to unique discussions that may not be found in more traditional MPH programs. The degree is identical to that offered by taking coursework in person at the University of Massachusetts. Other MPH programs can be considered if fellows are interested. At the end of the MPH, a capstone project is required. Fellows are also required to produce a project that results in a paper of publishable quality. Field work over the course of the fellowship should culminate with this project. Fellows also have the opportunity to participate in other global health educational experiences, such as the Health Emergencies in Large Populations (HELP) course, and the international emergency medicine fellow conferences held regionally and nationally.
3. Experiential: Fellows will have funding and protected time to participate in global health field work. In addition to participating in our emergency medicine training program in India, fellows are encouraged to work in other sites if they have contacts with other organizations or interests in other geographic areas. Recent fellows have worked on projects in Palestine with USAID, Haiti with Partners in Health, and Iraq with NYC Medics.
The program currently accepts one fellow per year starting in July. Fellow’s salaries are among the most competitive in the country. A full benefits package is offered, including paid vacation, paid CME time, paid holiday time, medical benefits, disability and 403b.
The successful applicant will have satisfactorily completed emergency medicine residency training at an ACGME accredited program and have demonstrated a strong interest in International Emergency Medicine. Please note that fellows must be able to get an unrestricted license to practice medicine in New York State as they will be working as attending physicians.
