Non-Physician Applicants (including DNP & PhD nurses): Pre- and Post-doctoral applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents. Pre-doctoral fellowship candidates must have completed a Master’s degree in a relevant field, including: MS, MPH, MBA, MSW or equivalent. Postdoctoral fellowship candidates must have completed a PhD or equivalent.

Most applicants are either committed to a career as an academic 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.
