General Medicine Fellowship
The Division of General Medicine Fellowship program goal is to develop skilled academic primary care specialists to train, support and address the shortage of primary care physicians. The UT Health General Medicine fellowship program will provide an individualized training experience to one fellow every two years. The fellowship program will provide the physician with growth and development opportunities beyond a core residency program to prepare physicians for a competitive career in academic medicine.
Our fellowship program offers six designated tracks: Public Health, Healthcare Quality and Safety, Teaching, Clinical Research, Biomedical Biomedical Informatics, and an Administration track. Each track will provide the fellow with a specialized education and learning experience based on their concentration. The Fellow will be assigned to a mentor based on the fellow’s areas of interest. The mentor will have a key role in the development of the fellow by providing guidance and resources to ensure the fellow’s success during the program.
The Fellow is expected to continuously gain knowledge, medical skills, and judgment in the field of Internal Medicine. The Fellow will build on their initial residency training and enhance their skill set with inpatients and outpatients. Fellows will learn indications and complications of specialty procedures, appropriate use of diagnostic studies in their area, and proper use of medications. The fellow will be expected to use progressive development and solid clinical judgment when providing care to patients. The Fellow is expected to support the educational mission of UT Health by teaching internal medicine residents and/or medical students during routine clinical care. The Fellow will also be encouraged to give didactic teaching or participate in small group teaching sessions.
The Prerequisites for the Fellows:
- Graduate from an accredited Medical School
- A Full and Unrestricted Medical License in the State of Texas
