Emergency & Disaster Global Health

The Division of Emergency & Disaster Global Health is purposed to advance the scientific knowledge, operational capability and capacity, and discipline-specific expertise needed to meet the unscheduled health and medical needs of people both locally and globally. Our mission is to improve health security and resource utilization through service, addressing the medical needs and health infrastructure support of diverse, multicultural, and multinational peoples around the globe.

The EDGH Division faculty and staff possess clinical expertise in emergency medicine and these scientific disciplines and concentrations:

  • Global Health
  • Disaster Medicine
  • Emergency Management
  • International Emergency Medicine
  • Public Health and Humanitarian Assistance
  • Homeland Security Workforce Preparedness

In addition to our clinical expertise, our fellowship program aims to educate physicians and health providers to help meet the timely medical needs of those impacted by disasters and poverty and those who have been displaced or impoverished geographically. Our trainees also learn to meet the timely medical needs of any situation that limits access to essential health resources and medical care.

Our postdoctorate EDGH Fellowship Program is a two-year training program that fosters the clinical expertise, experience, and readiness for future clinical experts in the above disciplines and concentrations. Additionally, our Visiting International Professorship Program provides selected global colleagues the opportunity to participate in UT Southwestern learning, observe clinically, and teach our faculty and fellows about their country’s health and medical infrastructure.
