The General Internal Medicine Fellowship is designed to train future generations of successful academic general internists and hospitalists by providing the necessary advanced knowledge, skills and experiences to succeed in academia. This is a two-year faculty development program that includes formal coursework and mentored experiential learning in several areas including: research, medical education, quality improvement and patient safety, and academic career skills.
Fellows will complete a Master of Public Health degree with courses in biostatistics, epidemiology, and research design and analysis. They will also complete programs in medical education and academic leadership. Fellowship faculty have expertise in epidemiology, outcome and health services research, quality improvement, patient safety, tobacco and substance abuse, and other areas. Fellows will complete mentored projects in an area of concentration (research, education, quality improvement).
The Fellowship is designed for individuals interested in academic generalist careers as clinician-investigators, clinician-educators, or quality and safety experts. Fellows will have opportunities for inpatient and outpatient clinical work, teaching, and research.
