The EMAT Emergency medicine Fellowship is aimed at supporting local EM specialists and specialist nurses working in emergency care to attain a tertiary level training that will provide them with the high-level skills and knowledge necessary for EM leadership within Tanzania. The fellowship has been covering one fellow to pursue a PhD or formal fellowship in Emergency Medicine since 2017. It is available for two academic years and will cover tuition and a living stipend. To date EMAT has provided sponsorship for two PhD candidates.
The candidate must be a Tanzanian resident, full faculty, and active member of EMAT.
The candidate must have graduated from an emergency medicine residency program or a Masters in Critical Care & Trauma nursing program from a higher learning institution recognized by the Tanzanian Government.
The candidate must have worked clinically or academically, or both in a Tanzanian emergency medicine/nursing program for at least two years.
The candidate must be in a clinical or academic position within a public institution in Tanzania that allows him or her to create a clinical or academic structure that will be used to train and mentor local faculty.
The candidate must provide proof of enrollment in well-established PhD/Fellowship program from a university within Africa. Funding is dependent on the fellow being in good academic standing throughout the fellowship.
