The Department of Family Medicine offers an academic fellowship program designed for those residents whose career goals include medical education and/or productive research careers. The fellowship is a combined program with the Section of General Internal Medicine at BU Medical Center.
The curriculum of the Family Medicine 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. Research skills are developed through didactic instruction and supervised research experiences. Fellows also learn teaching methods, have opportunities for supervised teaching, and participate in a management skills training seminar.
