Academic Fellowship

The Academic Fellowship is a one-year program offered to graduating residents who have demonstrated an interest in academic family medicine. Fellows work closely with the residents in coordinating the didactic curriculum, learn precepting and inpatient attending skills, and are involved in a mentoring program. Fellows also have the opportunity to participate in the University of Michigan's Medical Education Scholars Program (MESP). Successfully completing the fellowship will provide graduates with the skills needed to begin faculty careers in the specialty of family medicine.

For questions about the application process, please contact Sherri Bartkowiak at [email protected] or (734) 232-6776.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and national recommendations recruitment for all of our family medicine fellowship programs will be done virtually this year. We anticipate all of our interviews and site tours will be conducted over a virtual meeting platform and applicants will not need to travel to Ann Arbor to apply. Thank you for your understanding.  We will be posting our application dateline and additional information soon on this website  Any questions can be directed to [email protected].
