The Global EM Program is committed to advancing the science and practice of global health through collaborative research, training, capacity building and clinical service overseas. Working closely with our partners around the world, our projects are focused on the development of emergency medicine in low and middle-income settings, on disaster preparedness and on humanitarian response.
Our faculty and residents have participated in initiatives in India, Sri Lanka, Iraq, Lebanon, Qatar, UAE, Montenegro, South Sudan, Tanzania, the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
The Global EM Program provides residents a nurturing program to foster their interest in global health through a combination of didactics, mentored clinical rotations, supervised research and field-experiences. The program encourages a longitudinal experience through the PGY 2-4 years where residents commit their elective time to developing and implementing a goal-directed global health project. Previous resident projects have included innovative online research tools, overseas educational conferences, documentary films, and humanitarian assistance.
