International Disaster Medicine Fellowship

Welcome from the Program Director

Robert Fuller, M.D. Program Director

Welcome to the International Disaster Emergency Medicine (IDEM) Fellowship website at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine.

This is a one or two-year fellowship for emergency medicine residency trained physicians. Throughout the program, the fellow will work clinically as an attending Emergency Medicine physician in the Emergency Department at UConn Health in Farmington, CT. They will supervise and teach residents from the UConn Emergency Medicine Program and medical students from the UConn School of Medicine. Ideally, the fellow will participate in the Master of Public Health during the two-year fellowship. The fellowship uses milestone type progression to build skills and improve personal resiliency by experience and inoculation with various increasingly complex deployments.

On this website you will find comprehensive information about our IDEM fellowship program, affiliated hospitals as well as information about the Greater Hartford area.

As you read about our fellowship you will see that the primary goal of our program is to provide exceptional education to the IDEM fellows. It is assumed that after graduation fellows will take a leadership position and be active in research and academics, leading to a career as an internationally noted expert in these fields. IDEM allows for graduating Fellows to remain as faculty to the Fellowship, fostering collaboration and academic advancement.

We will begin taking applications for this program January 1, 2019. If interested in applying for this fellowship, contact James Gorman Jr. at 860-679-3486 or gorman@uchc.edu.
