Why pursue an education fellowship?
- Fellowship training prior to faculty appointment enables focused time for skill development under the guidance of dedicated mentors, and has been found to be effective in creating more faculty that are more productive (Taylor et al 2001) and satisfied with their careers (Anderson & Mavis 1995) compared to non-fellowship-trained counterparts.
- Fellows exhibit strengthened sense of self-efficacy, support from the educator community, and an enhanced knowledge base of educational principles (Lown 2009)
- Fellow graduates have advantages in the job search due to niches and areas of interest developed during fellowship (Yarris & Coates 2012)
- Any physician can teach. Not all have the inherent ability or skills to consistently effect learning. We will empower you with the philosophy, approach, methods, experience, and mentorship necessary for you to grow as an effective facilitator of learning.
