Family Medicine Faculty Development Fellowship

This Medical Education Faculty Development Fellowship in Family Medicine is among the first in the United States to offer a Masters in Medical Education (MME) degree as well as supported clinical and classroom teaching experience and further development of family medicine clinical expertise.

Statement of Purpose

The purpose of this 2 year fellowship is to develop and train family physicians early in their careers to fill positions of academic medicine leadership. This will be accomplished by providing them with a rigorous background in medical education theory. Fellows will also have opportunities for developing expertise in effective clinical teaching, strengthening their clinical effectiveness through experience, and exploring their research interests. These activities will be carried out within a supported and mentored context to facilitate their overall leadership skills. They will have the opportunity to fully experience the opportunities of a faculty educator.
