The Curriculum

Clinical practice

Fellows are usually involved in at least two international clinically based expeditions, each being about one month in duration. Under the supervision of fellowship faculty, the fellow functions as coordinator of the trip. The fellow may supervise emergency medicine residents as well as coordinate local health-care training. Fellows are encouraged to develop their own plans for international emergency medicine with the support of the fellowship faculty.


Fellows participate in training programs in different areas of the world. These courses may involve focused interventions on trauma training, advanced cardiac care, disaster preparation, pediatric assessment to medical personnel, and other acute care topics. In addition, assessment courses for basic health-care workers in remote areas have been offered. Emergency medicine systems development is also addressed in countries developing emergency medicine as a specialty. Fellows also lecture to emergency medicine residents and other departments as requested by fellowship faculty.
