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:
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.
