General Internal Medicine Fellowship applicants are physicians who have completed at least a three year internal medicine residency in the United States, and are board-eligible or board-certified in Internal Medicine. Family Medicine Fellowship applicants are physicians who have completed at least a three-year Family Medicine residency in the United States, and are board-eligible or board-certified in Family Medicine. Those who apply for the Preventive Medicine residency are physicians who have completed a clinical residency in the United States, usually in a primary care field (Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Pediatrics) and are board-eligible or board-certified in their area of training.

Most applicants are either committed to a career as an academic general internist/family physician or want to develop specific skills in research, teaching or management careers in other settings such as public health, industry, or special health care delivery organizations (group practice, managed care, etc.). Applications are reviewed on a “rolling basis”.

A completed application, personal statement, curriculum vitae and at least three references to the Fellowship program are required to apply. After review by the Fellowship Executive Committee decisions to offer an interview are made. Interviews are on-site and are a wonderful opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the program. You will get a chance to meet some of the fellows as well as senior faculty. Applicants are asked about their background and career goals, and interests/preferences regarding the curriculum options.
