The fellowship program considers candidates who have completed three years of Internal Medicine and wish to expand their skills or plan a career in General Internal Medicine. The two year program focuses on building clinical skills in ambulatory medicine in the general medicine clinic where they supervise medicine residents in their responsibilities for ambulatory medicine. In addition, they experience supervised opportunities for learning the skills and responsibilities for attending physician in inpatient academic services and consultations in the University Hospital. The fellow also participates as a small group leader in the pre-clinical course work of medical students in a course focusing on bio-psycho-social aspects of medicine and medical care. The course includes the skills of physical examination of simulated and actual patients.

The two year program has a additional focus on preparation for an academic career by acquiring experience and skills in the acquisition of the MPH in the School of Public Health or the MHEP in the Department of Medical Education. The content and methodology enable the fellow to participate in clinical research protocols that could result in publication or presentations of research. Topics may include clinical or disease epidemiology, analysis and evaluation in health services research, in depth consideration of ethical issues in medical care, in a rapidly reforming medical care system or innovations in conducting and evaluation learning in the educational environment.
