Qualified fellows develop an expertise in all aspects of Disaster Medicine, including humanitarian operations, chemical/biological/radiological/nuclear, and explosives (CBRNE), hospital-based emergency management, disaster simulation, and counter-terrorism medicine.
Fellows receive an appointment at Harvard Medical School and have the opportunity to train at institutions and schools across the Harvard-wide system. Alumni from this unrivaled educational program, now celebrating its 10th year anniversary, have become national and world leaders in the field.
We maintain relationships with selected sites in the US and internationally where fellows gain hands-on experience with experts working in the field.
Fellows and faculty have published extensively in the field of disaster medicine. Each fellow submits a publication quality research paper during the fellowship year.
Disaster response is core to our mission. We maintain a deployment-ready team capable of international response to appropriate crisis events in coordination with Team Rubicon.
All medical fellowship offerings include an academic appointment at Harvard Medical School as a Research Fellow. They also include the Disaster Medicine, CBRNE, Hospital Emergency Management, and Disaster Simulation (STRATUS) curricula in addition to their specific didactic program.
