Training and Mentoring
The Department of Emergency Medicine at Brown University has one of the few formal academic Divisions of Global Emergency Medicine anywhere in the country allowing us to offer our Global Emergency Medicine fellows a wide range of training and mentoring resources. Our Division of Global Emergency Medicine includes faculty and fellows actively engaged in international emergency medicine development, training, research and humanitarian relief.
Over two years fellows will acquire and apply skills in epidemiology, research methodology, and program planning through a longitudinal academic project. As part of our Global Emergency Medicine fellowship, fellows can choose to earn an advanced degree in the following:
- Masters of Public Health (MPH)
- Masters of Science in Clinical and Translational Research (MSc)
- Masters of Global Public Health (MSc)
- Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (DTMH): Latin America or East Africa
Fellows who already possess one or more of these degrees may opt out of the degree requirement at the discretion of the fellowship director. Other educational opportunities such as the certificate in clinical and translational research as well as structured courses are offered through the School of Public Health for those applicants with advanced degrees.
In addition to the advanced degree program, fellows will participate in a dedicated Humanitarian Emergency / Disaster Certification course, such as the Health Emergencies in Large Populations (HELP) course through the International Committee of the Red Cross and World Health Organization and/or the Harvard Humanitarian Response Intensive Course (HRIC). Fellows will have the opportunity to work with the Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Studies.
We are pleased to announce a new online tool to support global emergency medicine fellowship instructional needs via a portal called Canvas. Current fellows can access their GEM Fellowship academic portal by clicking here.
