We are hosting a 2 year fellowship which is flexible, tailored to the applicants career interests, that yields a Diploma of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene and a second certification (of the applicants choice). The second “degree” could be an MPH, and RDMS, HRIC, Red Cross Refugee Care certification, an MBA, a Masters of Medical Education, Global Health Emergencies Course, a  Masters of Public Policy, or any other valid proposal approved by the fellowship director. 
 
The possibility exists to complete a joint fellowship in International Emergency Medicine and either Ultrasound or EMS, in conjunction with our peers at Stony Brook Sono and Stony Brook EMS (inquire for details to rolando.valenzuela@stonybrookmedicine.edu) 

The fellowship is non-ACGME approved (hence the flexibility) and seeks to optimize the applicants potential to transition directly into an international career and a leadership role. The Division of International EM will prepare the fellow with close mentoring, substantial on the ground experiences, and research. Tuition and travel costs are borne by the division during the fellowship. Intensive junior faculty development will occur throughout the fellowship with effective communication skills, lecturing and teaching skills, curriculum development, and writing skills emphasized throughout the two year process. International conference presentations are an imperative. We participate in numerous educational conferences as sponsors, organizers, and presenters and the fellows will be actively engaged. We support FOAM (Free Open Access Medical Education) activities that optimize access to EM development in our partnering international institutions.

We seek highly motivated and dedicated applicants who have completed a three or four year Emergency Medicine residency in the US or Canada (ABEM or FRCPC eligible) who can be licensed to practice in New York State. The fellow will function as junior faculty during all their clinical shifts at Stony Brook University Hospital. The applicant should have a successful residency resume with strong letters of reference and a documented interest in research and publication (abstracts and peer review publications), along with evidence of international interest. The successful applicant will bring some language and cultural competency to the program.

Projects

Project Name & Description Details

Emergency Medicine Development in St. Lucia

Stony Brook University's Division of International Emergency Medicine is working to encourage the development of Emergency Medicine on the island of St. Lucia. Working with our EM collagues at Victoria Hospital in Castries, Stony Brook IEM has sent residents, fellows, and attendings to practice in St. Lucia. In addition, we help coordinate the annual Topics in Emergency Medicine Conference in Rodney Bay, St. Lucia. In coordination with Stony Brook Division of Ultrasound, we have been holding annual Point-Of-Care Ultra Sound education across the island. Stony Brook IEM has also been working with the German NGO Global EMS along with our partners in the Royal St. Lucian Fire SErvice to train preshospital providers in resuscitation and airway techniques. Details

EM in Costa Rica

Stony Brook University's Division of International Emergency Medicine has been working with our colleagues in Costa Rica to continue the development of Emergency Medicine as a specialty. Residents and fellows have gone to San Jose to rotate clinically, as well as to take part in a medical Spanish elective organized by Stony Brook EM attending alumnus Dr. Cristina Hernandez, now at University of San Diego. Additionally, we have taken residents and fellows for the annual Conceptos en Medicina de Urgencias Conference held in San Jose. Details

Emergency Medicine in Chile

Stony Brook University's Division of International Emergency Medicine has a long partnership in Chile. Led by Drs. Mallon and Valenzuela, we have been involved with the birth of Emergency Medicine in Chile, have seen its recognition as a specialty, and have helped in its continuing development. Current projects involve research on trauma systems development as well as prehospital medicine capacitation and improvement. Residents, fellows, and faculty members have been to Chile for clinical rotations, and Stony Brook IEM has hosted countless Chilean Emergency Physician attendings and trainees in New York. Details

Emergency Medicine in Brazil

Stony Brook IEM has been workign with our peers in Brazil and have been excited to see Latin America's largest country continue to develop. We have been working closely with the highly motivated and passionate Emergency Medicine leaders, and have been involved with supporting and speaking in the biannual ABRAMEDE conference. Emergency medicine practitioners from across Brazil have joined us for clinical rotations at Stony Brook, and our residents and fellows are also given the opportunity to visit Brazil to learn more about Emergency Medicine in the most populous cities on the continent. Details

Emergency Medicine in Peru

We have been closely following the development of Emergency Medicine in Peru. IWe have been working closely with our colleagues in Chile, Costa Rica, and Colombia, as well as with our colleagues in the US at Highland Hospital in Oakland California, as well as the leaders in EM education at EMRAP:GO. In addition to hosting residents in academic exchanges, Stony Brook IEM Fellows and Stony Brook EM residents have the opportunity to visit Emergency Rooms in Lima, Cusco, and Iquitos. Additionally, the Stony Brook IEM strongly encourages our fellows to apply to the Gorgas School of Tropical Medicine at Cayetano Heredia Hospital in Lima, Peru. The unparalleled clinical experience gives students the opportunity to learn from leaders in the field and to interact in ward rounds in the country's largest tropical medicine unit. Details
