“I am thrilled to be joining the UW EM team as part of the GEMRH Fellowship. I am so excited for the opportunity to work with underserved communities in Alaska, improve my understanding of disaster relief and humanitarian aid, and collaborate with the incredible team at UW. Since my very first interactions with the team, I have felt supported and welcome. I couldn't be happier to be joining this dedicated and compassionate group of people.”
Dr. Haflich, joining us from the Denver Health Residency in Emergency Medicine, completed his Medical Doctorate at Boston University School of Medicine.

“I am ecstatic to be joining the UW EM family as a GEMRH fellow. Being a doctor at the furthest reaches of emergency medicine has been a goal of mine for many years. Indeed, the pursuit of the highest level of training in global health at an institution pushing the boundaries of what EM can achieve is an opportunity to craft the career I've always dreamed of. I look forward to the ingenuity, collaboration and mentorship for which UW EM is known.”
