Faculty Development Fellowship
The Department of Family Medicine and its Affiliated Residency Network at the University of Washington believe that fellowship training is critical to the evolution of family medicine. The current faculty development fellowship program is designed to prepare family physicians for full-time teaching careers in medical schools and family practice residencies. 12 fellows are admitted each year and spend five full weeks at the University of Washington Seattle campus. Each fellow spends one year in the fellowship, functioning as a faculty member in one of the affiliated residency programs. Fellows' activities include supervised student and resident teaching, individual projects under faculty mentorship and clinical care in a continuity family practice at their home residency program. This experiential base is enriched by 25 days of intensive instruction at the University of Washington. The goal of our program is to graduate fellows who will develop a successful career as full-time teachers in family medicine. It provides the resources, experiences and guidance fellows need to assume demanding roles in academic medicine. In turn, we look to the faculty fellows as a source of innovation and renewal within our Family Medicine Residency Network.
