Emergency & Disaster Global Health Fellowship Program

Why Train at UT Southwestern

The Emergency & Disaster Global Health Fellowship Program is a two-year, Texas Medical Board-accredited multidisciplinary experience offered by the Department of Emergency Medicine and the Division of EDGH at UT Southwestern.

Among our outstanding faculty are many industry leaders doing remarkable things for the emergency and disaster global health subspecialty. The expertise these faculty and their peers offer results in unmatched education and opportunity directly to our fellows in a very intimate learning environment.

Fellowship candidates are ideally emergency medicine residency-trained, American Board of Emergency Medicine-certified/eligible physicians who have a passion for learning in multicultural diverse settings, enjoy fieldwork and are willing to travel internationally, and demonstrate a commitment to clinical excellence and patient safety in a variety of practice settings and locations.

Over this two-year fellowship, fellows will learn to manage the acute and unscheduled health care needs of people following disasters or geographic displacement, under resource-limited conditions or disrupted local health care infrastructure.
