Fellowship Curriculum

The Stanford Global Emergency Medicine Fellowship is a two-year program with an option to obtain an associated Masters degree (MPH, MEHP, Ms-PopH). Fellows build the skills necessary to work in developing nations and participate in a variety of ongoing international health programs helping them focus their future careers. Emergency Medicine faculty at Stanford partner with local governments, NGOs, private organizations, and international aid agencies on a number of projects, including: EMS development, Emergency Medicine education, rural health initiatives, trauma system development. Stanford Emergency Medicine International and the Global Emergency Medicine Fellowship program focus on human development through education, emergency care systems strengthening, and research. Fellowship goals follow the outlines put forth by the Society of Academic Emergency Medicine and the American College of Emergency Physicians. Focus is on the skills necessary to work in cooperation with local health care providers and government officials to assess international health care systems and identify pertinent emergency medical health issues. After identifying the needs of the local community, fellows will learn to develop, implement, and integrate programs that address these challenges. The fellow’s specific areas of interest will dictate the core activities.


Project Name & Description Details
Online Medical Research Program
SEMI is evaluating data from EMTs to determine how to improve EMT education, protocols, and reaching the most vulnerable patients in India. Multiple studies include obstetric emergencies, burns, chest pain, trauma, seizures, pediatric shortness of breath, stroke, among others.
EM Instructor Development
SEMI is collecting data on learning best practices from our train-the-trainer program, which enables graduates of our Myanmar emergency medicine diploma course to become instructors themselves.
Epidemiology of Prehospital Emergencies
SEMI is using EMS data as a novel source for understanding the epidemiology of pediatric emergencies in India. Our findings will be used to improve EMT quality of care and strengthen systems for children in India.
Provider Support Tools
SEMI has developed 27+ locally appropriate care guidelines for ambulance drivers, and created a custom-built mobile app to provide quick access to the information in Nepal. Using data collected through the app, SEMI is identifying practice gaps, and collaborating on ways to address these gaps from systems, education, and organizational standpoint.
Gender Based Violence
SEMI is studying records of helpline calls and conducting in-person interviews to develop a clearer understanding of women's needs that will serve to strengthen and grow helpline services and technology in India.
Neonatal Referral System
SEMI is working to improve neonatal IFTs for critically ill infants by conducting research to identify strengths and gaps in primary, secondary, and tertiary public hospitals in India.
