Session 8: International Emergency Medicine
International Emergency Medicine is a diverse field that includes everything from humanitarian response, emergency medicine systems development, teaching, research, policy making, direct patient care in austere settings, and more. As Emergency Medicine physicians, we possess a uniquely diverse skill set and systems focus that translates well to these varied settings. This webinar will explain the many paths a graduating resident can pursue with a fellowship in International Emergency Medicine. We will discuss the different structures of these fellowships and what we look for in an applicant.
Hosts: Sean Kivlehan MD, MPH, (Brigham and Women’s Hospital) , Parveen Parmar MD, MPH (Keck school of Medicine) , Rebecca Walker MD, MPH (Stanford University School of Medicine)
