EDUCATE. HEAL. EMPOWER.
The Emergency Medicine Global Health Fellowship is a program organized through the Department of Emergency Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina in collaboration with the MUSC Department of Public Health and One World Health. The purpose of this Fellowship is to promote hands-on clinical field experience, educational initiatives, and research.
We are committed to the promotion of Global Health and the continued development of Global Emergency Medicine. Our goal is to provide fellows with the resources they need to become leaders in their field. As such, our fellows have the opportunity to work alongside and collaborate with other fellows and faculty with expertise in Ultrasound, Toxicology, EMS, Critical Care, and Disaster and Wilderness Medicine.
The fellowship is structured to provide fellows with a customized academic Global Health curriculum, didactic and bedside teaching opportunities, as well as hands-on field experience geared towards each individual fellow’s areas of interest and career goals in Global Health. The fellowship is a one-year program with the option to complete a second year for those applicants wishing to complete an associated Masters degree during fellowship. Individuals seeking a one-year position may include applicants who already hold a relevant advanced degree, have significant field experience within global emergency medicine, or chose to attain a non-graduate level diploma in a field pertinent to their Global Health interests during fellowship. (Examples include, but are not limited to completion of the MUSC certificate course in Global Health, a Certificate of Tropical Medicine or a Diploma of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene).
Due to the strong support of our Fellowship within the Department, University, and Non-profit world, we feel that our Fellowship offers a unique opportunity to custom-craft an individualized experience not found at other institutions.
Each year, the Division of Emergency Medicine awards one EM Resident a stipend of up to $3000 toward an International Emergency Medicine Global Health project with OneWorld Health. The Resident may choose from sites in Uganda, Nicaragua, or Burundi. The scholarship is merit-based.
