International Emergency Medicine Fellows

The International Emergency Medicine Fellowship (IEMF) is a two-year program designed to provide Emergency Medicine physicians with the skills, knowledge and experiences to become professionals in the fields of humanitarian aid and international development.  Directed by Dr. Rachel Moresky, the fellows serve as attending physicians in the New York-Presbyterian Hospital Emergency Department while pursuing a Masters in Public Health (MPH) through the department of Populations and Family Health’s Program on Forced Migration.

 Fellows spend up to six months working abroad in mid- and lower-income countries with international aid agencies, seeking to gain a variety of experiences in humanitarian policy, clinical care and disaster management.  Recent fellowship fieldwork has including assessing under-5-year-old child survival in Sierra Leone, a joint project with the Centers for Disease Control and the International Rescue Committee, conducting technical writing for the World Health Organization, and providing emergency care to victims in Haiti within days of the 2010 earthquake.
