This fellowship, much like remote, rural, and humanitarian healthcare teams, is multidisciplinary; and we encourage healthcare professionals from across the globe and at all career grades to apply including clinical and non-clinical healthcare professionals.

Education and Training

  • Attendance at a conference, course, or meeting

We are delighted to bring this fellowship to our members so early in the faculty’s development and could not offer this exciting fellowship without the support of our membership and donors in particular, The International Centre for Excellence in Emergency Medicine (CEEM).

We hope to offer this fellowship on a yearly basis in order to support three of our key goals;

  1. Actively support the professional development of remote, rural, and humanitarian healthcare professionals
  2. Spotlight, the talents, experience, and innovations of remote, rural, and humanitarian healthcare professionals
  3. Support and inspire future generations of remote, rural, and humanitarian healthcare professionals to access opportunities to gain access to this exciting, rewarding and fast developing professions
