The Global Health Emergency Medicine (GHEM) Fellowship program helps emergency medicine clinicians develop the appropriate skills, knowledge and experiences, to become leaders in the Global Health arena. Through this process, our fellows are able to develop and implement educational, programmatic and research initiatives, benefitting vulnerable populations around the globe.

This fellowship is one of its kind and one of the firsts in Canada. We select one to two fellows per year, and each fellow can choose a curated curriculum which includes 1/3 field work, 1/3 education and research, and 1/3 clinical work.

Fellows can choose to complete this fellowship in 1 or 2 years, based on prior experiences and educational achievements. Fellows can choose to amalgamate their global health focus with one of the following sub-fields of interest: Systems Development, POCUS, Trauma, Disaster/Humanitarian Relief, Innovations, Research, Pre-Hospital Care and Emergency Medicine Training. We have established partnerships with TAAAC, MSF and HHI. Our fellowship is housed at the Emergency Department at University Health Network in Toronto, Canada.

We will be hosting a GHEM Q&A session with our 2022-2023 Fellow Dr. Matt Douglas-Vail, and Fellowship Directors Drs. Hiren Patel and Alex Stefan. Please RSVP here and a Zoom link will be shared before the session.
