Utah PEM-GH fellows are required to complete a scholarly project focused on global health. This project could be research-based or quality improvement work. These projects would be needs-based and developed with the input of local collaborators at the global health project site, whether that be global or local. This project must fulfill the Utah PEM fellowship and ABP requirements for a scholarly project, with submission of a manuscript by the end of the third year. The project will allow fellows to develop skills in designing and conducting research in global health. Fellows may join ongoing faculty research projects or develop and implement individual projects in their areas of interest mentored by both US-based and international on-site healthcare providers. Fellows will have the support of mentors with strong experience in global health. These mentors could include University of Utah faculty from across a range of disciplines, including PEM, pediatric critical care, general pediatrics, trauma, and emergency medicine. In addition, as University of Utah trainees, fellows have access to faculty mentors and advisors, research support infrastructures, and training resources throughout the institution. PEM-GH fellows will have Scholarly Oversight Committees that include faculty with experience in global health, and these committees will meet with the fellow twice per year to provide guidance and feedback.
