Northern California Faculty Development Fellowship

Since 1990 the UCSF Department of Family and Community Medicine has offered a Faculty Development Fellowship Program for faculty in family medicine residency programs and departments in Northern California.  Over 300 fellows have completed the program, many of whom now hold leadership positions throughout Northern California.

This one year fellowship focuses on the knowledge, attitudes, and skills needed to be an effective faculty member.  The fellowship meets eight times for three-day residential sessions, held monthly in the San Francisco Bay Area from October through May. 

In the setting of a supportive learning community, the fellowship curriculum includes:

  • Teaching Skills
  • Curriculum Design and Evaluation
  • Leadership Skills
  • Professional Development
  • Scholarly Work

Applicants must be sponsored by their residency directors or program chairs.  We accept 14-16 fellows annually. First priority will be given to faculty who currently hold or are entering teaching positions at a family medicine residency program or department.  We also accept applications from other primary care specialties as space permits. We place priority on recruitment of applicants who are underrepresented in medicine.

There is a tuition fee to cover costs of fellowship faculty, training materials, facility use, and other expenses.  Scholarship support may be available.
