In additional to their work abroad, fellows will gain clinical and educational experience at the University of California Davis Emergency Department, a level-1 adult and pediatric trauma care center servicing the diverse population in Northern California. Fellows will also have the opportunity to work in multiple low-resource sites during the course of their fellowship under the guidance of multiple faculty members, while also pursuing an advanced degree.
