Global Experience

The 2 year fellowship offers 3 months per year of protected travel and research time. Easy scheduling allows for fellows to attend international conferences for presentations. Established international experiences available to our fellows include projects in Rwanda, Nicaragua, Kenya, Haiti, Bangladesh, and American Samoa in areas such as post-conflict development, EM curricula design and training, acute humanitarian and disaster response, and global EM research. Visit the Global Sites page for more information about our well established core global opportunities. 

Fellows may also work closely with a faculty mentor within the Division of Global Emergency Medicine or outside faculty to establish their own international program or research project. Apart from HRIC, HELP, and other beneficial resources include the Brown University's Global Health Initiative, a unique forum for faculty and fellow collaboration that fosters cross-departmental mentoring relationships. Fellows will have the opportunity to work with the Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Studies.
