Departmental Fellows

There are several types of trainees at SMD who are known as "fellows," including fellows in ACGME-accredited training programs, Departmental fellows, and postdoctoral (research) fellows and associates. Departmental fellows who will have a clinical practice apart from their training program must complete the application for independent practice. They also are given secondary appointments as faculty members, typically as Instructor or Senior Instructor.

This Guide provides a quick reference table to understand these different types of fellows and the offices who oversee each.
