The BIDMC Fellowship in Disaster Medicine has been chosen by the White House Medical Unit (WHMU) to provide training in field trauma care and austere medicine as part of a Protective Medicine Fellowship program we will be developing for the WHMU. The fellowship will be taught over the course of one year, and all WHMU will participate. We are proud to have been chosen for such an important undertaking and look forward to working closely with the WHMU in the years to come. As part of this program, the fellows will have a chance to rotate in the WHMU in a more extensive way than they currently do now. We are the only Disaster Medicine fellowship program that provides such “real-world” training to our fellows.
