Global Emergency Medicine

The Department of Emergency Medicine has a strong commitment to expanding emergency care for the sick and wounded globally. Our global emergency medicine (GEM) program operates under the mission of capacity and resilience building and responding to international crisis. Our medical students, residents, and fellows can increase their global emergency medicine knowledge and experience while at CMC in multiple areas, including; international electives, global academic partnerships and research, and global emergency medicine education programs. These global emergency medicine programs are the global health interest group, intensive course in global health, global emergency medicine residency track, and the global pediatric emergency medicine fellowship track.

Critical Care

The Critical Care elective allows residents to further their education in a variety of critical care topics in the Medical or Cardiac ICU. Residents can choose to focus on a variety of topics such as procedures, airway skills, bedside ultrasonography and/or teaching other residents (including taking on a junior attending role). This elective allows for great flexibility in accommodating the specific educational goals of the resident.
