The Operational and Disaster Medicine (ODM) division at Carolinas Medical Center (CMC) in Charlotte, NC, part of Carolinas HealthCare System, is housed in the Department of Emergency Medicine, but boasts faculty from the Departments of Trauma Surgery and Critical Care. The division has global reach and works closely with academicians, government agencies, policy makers and first responders.

The past decade has brought significant efforts to professionalize disaster response. The combined forces of global conflict, extreme environmental changes and technological catastrophes have driven military medicine, traditional disaster response and humanitarian relief toward a single, unified specialty – operational medicine.

The ODM Fellowship program at Carolinas Medical Center offers a unique breadth and depth of experience. The fellow will participate in:

  • Self-directed learning
  • Focused didactics
  • Intense simulation
  • Experiential learning
  • Operational on-the-job training

Upon completion of this fellowship, graduates will be skilled in managing all aspects of the disaster cycle and have the ability to assume a leadership role on the local, regional, federal or international level in the areas of disaster medicine, operational medicine and emergency management.

Carolinas Medical Center Operational and Disaster Medicine Fellowship program prepares fellows to be active in research and academics, lead medical and technological innovation and emerge as internationally noted experts in their fields.
