About Us

The Department of Emergency Medicine at Yale has a strong history of commitment to global health education. Graduates of the residency program have consistently gone on to pursue advanced training in international medicine and many of our graduates are engaged in global health careers. Our graduates direct several top international emergency medicine fellowship programs, lead a variety of global health initiatives, and many are actively engaged in emergency humanitarian response with leading governmental and non-governmental agencies.

Our recent work includes:

Our faculty engage in cutting edge research on diverse and emerging topics of importance in Global Health (primarily in Low- and Middle-Income Countries). Our current research priorities include: humanitarian health and the health impacts of war and conflict; controlling non-communicable diseases in LMICs; developing effective palliative care in low-income countries to relieve suffering and reduce medical impoverishment; health consequences of including health impact.
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.
