Community Medicine Fellowship

The goal of the U-M Community Medicine Fellowship at the University of Michigan is to create clinical leaders, educators, and advocates to improve the health and healthcare of underserved communities. 

Applications for the 2024-2025 fellowship year are currently being accepted on a rolling basis. 

The Community Medicine Fellowship is a 12-month clinical fellowship which is a unique collaboration between Hamilton Community Health Network, the largest FQHC in Flint, Michigan, and the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Michigan.  It is designed to promote excellence in community medicine, foster sustainable resources for the health of the Flint community, and develop leadership skills and advocacy training for fellows interested in improving the health and healthcare of underserved communities.

Applications for the 2024-2025 fellowship year are currently being accepted on a rolling basis.  Interviews will be held in November and December. Outside of the fellowship program, we are unable to offer rotations or preceptorships to individuals from outside of the University of Michigan at this time.

The fellowship year runs July through June. 

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.
