The UAB Department of Family and Community Medicine offers a 10-month-long faculty development fellowship for family medicine and senior primary care residents and junior faculty.
A recent investigation found that the primary reason for residents not to pursue a career in academic medicine was the lack of preparation and mentorship. The UAB 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 primary care senior residents, junior faculty, and faculty members interested in improving their teaching and professional skills. Fellows will be selected on the basis of the quality of application materials, years of experience, support of their program director, and the level of interest and dedication. Accepted candidates will be notified of their selection by mid-July.
