The Global Emergency Medicine Fellowship Program at the University of Florida is now accepting applications.
The program has four faculty members and has established partnerships with clinical sites in Haiti and Ghana. All travel expenses are fully paid for.
The program has a strong focus on global health research, with opportunities to join existing projects or develop own projects. Formal internal and external research training is part of the core curriculum.
The program director is also fellowship-level trained in Ultrasound, Critical Care Medicine and EMS. Both clinical and research projects with a focus in these areas are possible.
The fellow will work 768 hours as an attending physician in the Emergency Department at the University of Florida during the duration of this 12-month fellowship. These hours can be spent working at our academic level 1 Emergency Department with residents, or at one of our two recently-built freestanding emergency departments. The fellow will have four weeks of vacation and the salary is at the fellow’s PGY level.
Inquiries, questions and applications can be directed to Dr. Torben Becker at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no application form. Applications should include two letters of recommendation (one from the resident program director if currently a resident), the applicant’s CV and a personal statement (not to exceed one page).
