Global Emergency Medicine

Fellow Experience

Our one-year, SAEM-approved fellowship in global emergency medicine develops physicians’ skills to advance emergency medicine in low resource areas through two or more months of fieldwork abroad, teaching, curriculum development and research while offering ample flexibility to develop or continue individual global health projects.

Fellows are supported to pursue advanced training through the UW Global Health Institute’s graduate capstone certificate. Past fellows have engaged in global health projects and research in Uganda, Rwanda and Kenya, and with local NGOs, ICRC, WHO, and the UNDP.

“Serving the people of the San Lucas Tolimán communities is a transformative experience filled with humanism and gratitude. I am so thankful we were able to return after a COVID-hiatus, and I look forward to returning next year.” – Jessica Schmidt, MD, MPH, Director of Global Health
