Section 3 Ed Opps

This section was created to give the reader a clearer understanding of the opportunities that exist for training in global emergency medicine beyond the “competencies” discussed in the previous section. These topics are very procedural in nature, seeking to educate you on things that need to be considered during your training to maximize your time in medical school and residency. These topics are indispensable for those seeking a career in global EM, but are also important for anyone interested in GEM. In the following chapters, we will discuss how to find a mentor, how to get involved in a GEM project, how to fund that project, how to choose an IEM fellowship, and other ways to get involved in GEM.
