How to Apply
To be eligible for this program, physicians will have finished residency, be board eligible or board certified and plan a career as an academic faculty member. Health care providers from other disciplines are also eligible, but must have completed a doctoral degree.
Additionally, each trainee must be a US citizen or have a visa pending permitting permanent residence in the US. Members from minority groups that are underrepresented are particularly encouraged to apply. An underlying assumption of the fellowship program is that the entering fellows are clinically competent in their specialty. Clinical time will be limited to no more than 30% of the total with most of that involving teaching or precepting medical students, residents or other professions in clinical settings.
Deadlines for Application
The deadline for applications is a rolling one, but preferred by January 1 of each year and the program begins July 1.
Applications are received and reviewed by the Director. The Director will invite candidates meeting institutional qualifications and who are seeing an academic career for an interview. The candidates who have been selected to interview for the fellowship program are interviewed by approximately four faculty members and current trainees. Each interviewer will fill out a standardized evaluation form for the candidate, and the most outstanding candidate(s) will be offered positions.
