International Emergency Medicine Fellowship

The Department of Emergency Medicine offers a fellowship in International Medicine.  The goal is to develop an area of expertise in international emergency medicine for emergency physicians interested in pursuing a career in international health practice, research and administration.  This collaborative effort between the Johns Hopkins University Department of Emergency Medicine and the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health will allow the fellow to develop specific expertise in international emergency medicine by working locally and abroad.
