General Internal Medicine Fellowship
The General Medicine Fellowship is a 2 year program designed to train General Internists to become Clinician/Educators, Clinician/Administrators, and Clinician/Researchers. Our graduates have subsequently become Program Directors, Department Chiefs at Uniformed Services University, Chiefs of Graduate Medical Education, Chiefs of the General Medicine Service, Chiefs of Medicine, Deputy Chiefs of Clinical Services, and Hospital Commanders. In addition, the graduates have produced an average of 18 publications in peer-reviewed journals, to include manuscripts in such prestigious journals as JAMA and the Annals of Internal Medicine.
The curriculum focuses on all three areas above and can be tailored to the individual fellow's needs ("you make it what you want it to be"). Major activities include an MPH degree from USU, the Stanford Faculty Development Seminar, supervised teaching experiences of medical students and residents, mentored research projects, teaching of critical appraisal, and presentations at national meetings. Internists who already have an MPH may certainly apply, and then spend more time during the fellowship in their area (s) of interest.
In short, the General Medicine Fellowship is for General Internists who want to be leaders in Education, Administration, or Research. The fellowship will provide the skills and experiences necessary to not just survive but also excel in these roles, as graduates understand not only what to do but why they are doing it.
