Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) Fellowship in Disaster Medicine  is now celebrating its 15th year in operation., with over 85 alumni in the United States and around the world.

Qualified fellows develop an expertise in all aspects of Disaster Medicine, including EMS, humanitarian operations, chemical/biological/radiological/nuclear, and explosives (CBRNE), hospital-based emergency management, disaster simulation, and counter-terrorism medicine.

Fellows receive an academic 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 have become national and global 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.
