The Climate and Human Health Fellowship

The Climate and Human Health Fellowship at BIDMC trains emergency physicians to examine and advance evidence-based policies that help build climate-resilient communities and health systems. The two-year program includes a master’s degree from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, research projects focused on community- and hospital-based resilience and response strategies, and policy and advocacy training with partners in Washington, DC and elsewhere.

Fellows hold clinical appointments in BIDMC’s Department of Emergency Medicine and Harvard Medical School, as well as enjoying academic affiliations with the Harvard FXB Center for Health and Human Rights and the Center for Climate, Health, and the Global Environment at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (Harvard C-CHANGE). The fellowship is part of the LCF Consortium on Climate & Health Science Policy in partnership with the Climate & Health Science Policy Fellowship at the University of Colorado.
