The curriculum of the GIM and FM Fellowship Program combines flexibility to meet the interests and needs of individual fellows with a “core” set of educational experiences designed to prepare fellows for future academic careers. Click Preventive Medicine Residency for specific additional curriculum elements for those completing the residency. Research skills are developed through didactic instruction and supervised research experiences. This includes matriculation in the Boston University School of Public Health to earn a Masters of Science (MSc) degree in either Health Services or Epidemiology and supervised performance of at least one research project of the fellow’s choosing. Educational skills for all fellows are developed through didactic seminars, small group experiential seminars, and supervised teaching. Fellows may participate in a management skills training seminar. Clinical care consists of a continuity clinic 1-2 times per week and in some cases, specialty clinics (such as breast clinic, etc.). The amount of time each fellow spends on the above activities is tailored to individual interests and needs. For instance, fellows pursuing a career as a clinician-investigator may spend the majority of their time pursing research projects, whereas fellows interested in education would spend more time engaged in supervised teaching and designing and/or evaluating educational curricula and programs.
