AUB GHI | CREEW Call for Applications

Are you a health practitioner working in conflict settings and interested in developing your research capacity? Applications are now open for the CREEW Fellowship, 2025 cohort, with a focus on "Preparing for Climate Change Impact on Health in Conflict Settings".

The Center for Research and Education in the Ecology of War (CREEW) 2025 mentored fellowship, at the Global Health Institute at the American University of Beirut, adopts an online learning modality to train practitioners working in conflict-affected settings to conduct research on Preparedness for Climate Change Impact on Health in Conflict Settings. CREEW is a 12 month program that consists of three phases: Didactic Phase, Field-based Mentored Research Phase, and Research Dissemination Phase.

Through a mentored fellowship program, the Center for Research and Education in the Ecology of War (CREEW) equips frontline health practitioners working in conflict settings with the necessary skills that would enable them to conduct research on relationships between health and war. By examining the effects of social and environmental determinants, assessing climate sensitivity of diseases, and evaluating current coping mechanisms, research can inform evidence-based strategies for building climate resilient healthcare systems in conflict settings.

Upon successful completion of the three phases mentioned above, the CREEW fellows will receive two certificates: Online Certificate in Conflict Medicine, and CREEW 2025 Certificate of Completion.
