The BIDMC Fellowship in Disaster Medicine announces a new curriculum in CBRNE and Bioterrorism.

Under the direction of fellowship faculty member Dr. Shane Kappler, Instructor in Emergency Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Medical Director of Disaster Preparedness at Cambridge Health Alliance, we are excited to announce a new concentration in CBRNE, with emphasis on Bioterrorism.

Dr. Kappler earned his Master of Science degree in Biohazardous Threat Agents and Emerging Infectious Diseases from Georgetown University Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, where he remains on the faculty, teaching a graduate level course on Medical Preparedness, Response, and Capacity to bioterrorism threats. Dr. Kappler’s program will be taught to all fellows (Disaster Medicine, Pre-Residency Research in DM, Crisis Leadership, International EMS and Disaster Ops, and Counter-Terrorism Medicine) and will be in addition to their respective curricula. We look forward to a successful program in CBRNE and Bioterrorism with Dr. Kappler.
