ROTATIONS

Rotations are the cornerstone of the BIDMC Fellowship in Disaster Medicine program. The fellow will perform rotations within the United States, through the National Disaster Medical System/ Disaster Medical Assistance Teams (DMAT) (arranged by the fellowship), or his/her country of origin. A six-week rotation at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is included in the Fellowship program as an elective. Current clinical observation sites include: Boston EMS, Boston MedFlight, RI-DMAT, Medical Care at the Boston Marathon, Medical Care at major Boston sporting venues including the Boston Red Sox, Boston Bruins, Boston Celtics and New England Patriots, Goodyear Arizona Fire Department HAZMAT, and King County ALS in Seattle, Washington.

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. In each rotation, 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.

Following our mission 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 teach Fellows these integrated fields. Coming soon to the BIDMC Fellowship in Disaster Medicine educational platform will be rotation opportunities in India, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, and Spain. With each opportunity Fellows learn the necessary skills to manage disasters locally, nationally, and internationally through real-world experience.
