International Emergency Medicine and Global Health Fellowship

The Tufts-Baystate International Emergency Medicine (IEM) and Global Health fellowship was created to meet the increasing worldwide demand for emergency medicine services and training. Our one-year IEM fellowship leverages our Emergency Medicine department’s core strengths in ultrasound, research, wilderness medicine, and resuscitation science to give you the skills, experience and knowledge you need for a career in international medicine.

Want to Make an Impact on Global Health?

As a fellow, you will learn about other cultures travelling to developing nations as part of international humanitarian relief efforts. Working side-by-side with clinicians, you will teach emergency medicine practice while gaining hands-on experience with international medicine.

As a graduate of our global health fellowship, your skills in cross-cultural collaboration and planning and developing emergency medical services, prepares you for a career in international health. You can also earn a certificate in Tropical Medicine from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

Our Core Values of
Health Care Equality

Access to Emergency Medical Care is a universal human right.

Health care should be tailored to the needs of those receiving it.

Integration with local health care providers is crucial to the success of any international health care initiative.

The quality of care should constantly be evaluated using the principles of evidence-based practice.
