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 250 fellows have completed the program, many of whom now hold leadership positions throughout Northern California.

This one year, part-time fellowship focuses on the knowledge, attitudes, and skills needed to be an effective faculty member.  It includes:

One-on-One and Small Group Teaching
12-14 fellows annually
8 three-day residential sessions, held monthly in the San Francisco Bay Area from October – May
A core curriculum of essential skills, including:
   • One-on-One and Small Group Teaching
   • Formal Presentations
   • Curriculum Design
   • Leadership
   • Negotiation
   • Scholarship
   • Professional Development
   • Life-long Learning Skills
A scholarly project selected by the fellow
Between-session activities at the fellow’s home site
The opportunity to reflect on and apply learning
A network of colleagues!
Applicants must be sponsored by their residency directors or program chairs. 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 welcome applications from family physicians participating in fellowships sponsored by family medicine departments. We place priority on recruitment of women and underrepresented minorities.

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