Global Health Center Division

The Emergency Department is part of the interdepartmental Global Health Center, which has the goal of using evidence-based solutions to improve the delivery of medical care for the underserved worldwide. Emergency medicine residents can enter the Global Health Residency Track during their third year, participating in monthly seminars which focus on a range of global health topics. During their fourth year, selected residents participate in an intensive two week training session to review important skills needed for effective field projects and research, followed by an elective at a "partner site" where they implement or participate in a project of their choice. Current research in the department focuses on injury surveillance.
