UVA Department of Family Medicine Faculty Development Fellowship Program
In 2002, the University of Virginia Department of Family Medicine established a fellowship program designed to prepare family physicians for success in roles as academic faculty in medical school departments and community residency programs. In addition to offering a one-year curriculum in clinical instruction, information technology, leadership, intentional design and research methods, we ensure fellows multiple and varied opportunities to experience growth as clinicians, teachers and scholars under the guidance of skilled, experienced faculty members committed to the continued success of the program.
The faculty of UVa's Department of Family Medicine are leaders in bringing Information Mastery and Evidence-Based Medicine to bear on current medical practice not only in the United States but abroad as well. Our fellowship director, David C. Slawson, MD, is the Director of the Center for Information Mastery at UVA and an internationally-renowned expert in this area, and a focus on Information Mastery is elemental to the program and curriculum.
The fellowship espouses the Department's commitment to changing the way people think about health, changing the way people deliver health care, and changing the way people care for themselves.
