Our academic-community department has a variety of fellowships available. The goal of our Fellowship Program is to collaborate with nationally and internationally renowned faculty mentors in developing educators, researchers, and future academic leaders in Family Medicine. Within family medicine we offer maternal child health, sports medicine, and faculty development fellowships, which are available to our graduates as well as those family physicians who have trained elsewhere. Our fellows learn more about the biopsychosocial model and family-oriented, patient-centered health care. Course work includes:
- Evidence-based medicine
- Research methods
- Teaching and learning
- Family systems medicine
- Motivational approaches to behavior change
- Reflective practice
Our fellows also participate in:
- Scholarly or research projects
- Give presentations at national meetings
- Publish papers
Our residents have also gone on to participate in geriatric, palliative care, and adolescent health fellowships in other departments at URMC, and are highly sought-after. Fellows add much richness to the lives of our residents by providing teaching, both outpatient and inpatient, as well as more formally during outpatient core teaching.
