The UAB Department of Family and Community Medicine offers a 10-month-long faculty development fellowship for family medicine and primary care faculty members.
Previous research found that the primary reason for residents not to pursue a career in academic medicine was the lack of preparation and mentorship. The UAB Department of Family and Community Medicine Faculty Development Fellowship is a longitudinal program aimed at preparing participants for a career in medical education through the acquisition of skills in effective teaching, scholarship, and leadership in academia and clinical practice.
This fellowship is open to family medicine and other primary care faculty members interested in improving their teaching and professional skills. Fellows will be selected on the basis of their level of interest and dedication, career stage, and support of their program director or chair. Accepted candidates will be notified on a rolling basis during and immediately after the period of solicitation of applications.
Applicants must have the explicitly stated support of their residency program director or department chair to participate. Applicants should submit the following materials no later than Friday, July 16, 2023.
