A consensus panel of Emergency Physicians with experience in international health has published a recommended curriculum for a formal fellowship in International Emergency Medicine. This article reviews the current International Emergency Medicine (IEM) fellowships available to residency-trained Emergency Physicians in the United States.
Every allopathic Emergency Medicine (EM) residency program in the United States was contacted via e-mail or telephone. Programs that reported having an IEM fellowship were asked detailed information about their program, including: (1) the number of years the program has been offered; (2) the duration of the program; (3) the number of fellows taken each year; (4) the number of fellowship graduates from each program and their current practice patterns; (5) how the fellowship is funded; and (6) whether a Masters Degree in Public Health (MPH) is offered.
All 127 allopathic EM residency programs responded. Eight (6.8%) of these programs offered IEM fellowships. Of a total of 29 graduates identified, 23 (79.3%) were employed in academic medicine. All of the fellowships offered formal public health training and were funded by a combination of clinical billing and project-specific grants and scholarships. All IEM fellowships described a curriculum that reflected the previously published recommendations.
Opportunities in formal training in international health are increasing for graduates of EM residencies in the United States. The proposed curriculum for IEM fellowships seems to have been implemented and graduates of IEM fellowships seem to be applying their training in international projects.
