COLLABORATIVE INSTITUTIONS

Collaboration is the cornerstone of the BIDMC Fellowship in Disaster Medicine program. The fellow will rotate at sites and work with colleagues within the United States and internationally. In addition to the extensive disaster preparedness and response activities in and around Boston, Fellows conduct rotations in 11 countries and 9 states. Each opportunity is specifically selected for the educational experience it provides to the Fellow. For example, Seattle provides EMS Disaster Operations, Denmark provides International Emergency Management, New York City Fire and EMS provide Mass Gatherings training, and Torino Italy provides International Prehospital Disaster Operations, to name a few.

 

Our International Centers of Excellence in Disaster Medicine recognize institutions and systems that promote evidence-based disaster medicine education and research. Fellows will work with local and international mentors to develop research projects and deployment opportunities tailored to meet the needs and experience of the individual. Through such experiences, BIDMC Fellowship in Disaster Medicine Fellows take an active and integrated role in the field, learning by experience the real-world applications of specific areas of emergency preparedness and response. In addition, they will meet mentors and friends that will help facilitate the transition to a career in Disaster Medicine.

Our mission is to provide the most comprehensive hands-on education in Disaster Medicine and Emergency Management achievable.  BIDMC Fellowship in Disaster Medicine continues to work towards new and innovative ways to train Fellows in these integrated fields. With each opportunity Fellows learn the necessary skills to manage disasters locally, nationally, and internationally through real-world experience.
