Global Health Fellowship

The Yale-LSHTM Fellowship in Global Health and International Emergency Medicine (GHIEM) trains board eligible emergency physicians to become leaders in global health and to advance the science of global emergency care. Through an innovative partnership between Yale University and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), fellows will gain hands-on experience in public health in low-resource settings, tropical medicine and infectious disease, and work in complex humanitarian emergencies. Fellows will further develop their clinical and teaching skills as Clinical Instructors in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Yale University.

Fellows will further be integrated into departmental and Yale University Global Health activities including the resident global health track, global health courses taught on campus, the Yale Global Health Day, and the Yale/Stanford Johnson & Johnson Global Health Scholars program.


The program is only open to US board-certified or board-eligible emergency physicians. This means that generally applicants must have completed a US or Canadian Emergency Medicine residency program OR another emergency medicine residency program but with license in good standing to practice medicine in the United States.

Interested applicants are invited to learn more about the program by visiting us online at Yale EM Global Health and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

Applications may only be submitted online through the unified website for EM Global Health Fellowships

Please check the website for specific dates. The application deadline is the end of September. Selected applicants are invited for interview during October. Positions are offered on the universal “no-offer date” for global EM fellowships which is on the second Monday of November at noon eastern time. (Please check the application website for further details).

N.B. Candidates must complete a separate application to the LSHTM MSc program. Applicants should apply under the degree program for Tropical Medicine and International Health (TMIH) under the SPLIT STUDY format. Applicants interested in other degree programs at LSHTM may pursue alternate degree programs with Fellowship Director’s approval provided they are offered with the SPLIT STUDY format.
