The Fellowship

The International Emergency Medicine and Global Health Fellowship is a program organized through the Department of Emergency Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina in collaboration with the MUSC Department of Public Health and OneWorld Health.

This Fellowship is an Endowed Fellowship (The Edward C. O'Bryan, Jr., MD Fellowship in Global Health), and is one of only two endowed fellowships at MUSC. It has been in existence since 2016 and is available to Global Health Fellows in the Department of Emergency Medicine who meet certain travel, research, and clinical care criteria in serving at-risk populations in low-and-middle-income countries around the world. The Endowment is under the direction of the Global Health Director in the Department of Emergency Medicine.
