This one-year fellowship provides instruction in the teaching, administration and management skills needed to become an academic leader in family medicine. Faculty fellows are recruited from a national candidate pool of recent graduates of a family medicine residency. Fellows work with a team of mentors to design a customized learning program to fit their future career needs. A longitudinal project management series assists the fellows in all aspects of a curriculum, quality improvement, or scholarly project in their chosen area of study.

Patient Care Responsibilities

  • The fellow will act as the attending physician on the OHSU Family Medicine Inpatient Service for four to six weeks and work in their designated clinic four half days per week. He/she will participate in the call schedule for their clinic, and the Labor and Delivery schedule.

Educational Responsibilities

  • The fellow will have the opportunity to teach students and residents in a variety of settings. The fellow will work with educational leaders in the department to revise, implement, and evaluate a chosen area of the curriculum.

Administrative Responsibilities

  • The fellow will participate in faculty meetings, faculty development activities and the clinical and academic board of directors meetings

Self Education/Research/Fellowship

  • The clinical/academic leadership fellow will work with both the Academic and Clinical Vice-Chairs to develop research projects. This could include the potential to develop grantable projects in the areas of quality improvement or educational research and the fellow would be expected to develop one or more of these projects to the point where it could be presented at a regional or national meeting. In addition, the fellow will be able to attend CME activities which are consistent with the goals and objectives of the position and the fellow’s individual learning plan.
