Disaster Medicine Fellowship Curriculum
The Disaster Medicine Fellowship is primarily conducted in Indianapolis at Indiana University School of Medicine educational sites, but this program also requires rotations at outside the school’s educational and clinical facilities.
Flexibility is built into the curriculum, given that the availability of community-based training opportunities may change from year to year and the academic or research interests of individual fellows vary.
The dynamic curriculum in this program immerses the fellow in a variety of EMS settings:
Indianapolis Fire / EMS
Possible activities include USAMRID/USAMRCD chemical and biological casualty care course at Ft. Detrick in Maryland; health care surge course at the Center for Domestic Preparedness in Anniston, Alabama; hazmat course at the Center for Domestic Preparedness or at an alternate site; international rotation at JFK Hospital in Monrovia, Liberia; health policy rotation at the Veterans Administration, Center for Medicare/Medicaid Services (CMS), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) or the office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR); rotation at the Indiana State Department of Public Health; and wilderness medicine course, combat medicine course or confined space medicine course at various training locations.
