Here at CHOP we do have a formal PEM-Global Health Track plus Fellowship, and we accept one fellow per year, with interviews occurring during the usual PEM match process.
In this four-year program, candidates complete requirements for the PEM fellowship and are eligible for both the PEM board exam and the CTropMedŽ examination, with global health experience/research integrated throughout the four years. In addition to standard PEM training, individuals completing the program will acquire skills in clinical emergency tropical medicine (both at home and abroad), global health research training, academic work relating to global medicine, and additional exposure to global health learning opportunities, including a Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.
Interested applicants, should apply to the general PEM fellowship via ERAS in the usual manner and send an email to me at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> for further information.
