The newly-formed Weill Cornell Medicine academic Department of Emergency Medicine, in partnership with the Weill Cornell Center for Global Health, is proud to announce the launch of its Emergency Medicine Global Health Research Fellowship. This unique fellowship training program is specifically designed to prepare emergency physicians for academic careers in global health research. This three-year fellowship includes field based research at an established Weill Cornell international research site, formal instructions in research methods, interdisciplinary mentorship from NIH-funded faculty members, and clinical service at New York Presbyterian- Weill Cornell Medical Center’s Emergency Department.
Fellowship objectives include:
- Deepen trainees understanding of health care delivery systems, epidemiology of disease, and interventions to improve health in resource-poor settings
- Provide trainees with the skills to design and conduct patient-oriented research in global health (including an optional Masters of Science in Clinical Epidemiology and Health Services)
- Mentor trainees in the practice and teaching of evidence-based clinical medicine in New York City, and abroad
- Prepare trainees for NIH K-award submission by the end of the training program
Eligible applicants are graduates of an adult or pediatric emergency medicine residency training programs who express a commitment to become clinician-scientists focused on global health research. We will accept one to two trainees per year into the program. Applicants are encouraged to have prior global health experience. Applicants with Masters and/or PhD degrees or prior fellowships are also encouraged to apply, and the program can be adapted to provide them with more advanced training.
