The UNC Faculty Development Fellowship is a intensive experience that incudes 6 weeks in residence in Chapel Hill, NC spread over the course of the year. It is designed for early career faculty members within the first 3-5 years of a faculty role. Over the last 35 years, the fellowship has graduated over 500 physicians who have gone on as leaders within the discipline of family medicine. Fellows gain an opportunity to network with a group of other faculty physicians at a similar career stage. They have access to state-of-the-art materials on professional development, teaching, and evidence-based practice, presented by nationally recognized fellowship faculty. Additionally, fellows receive individual and group faculty instruction while completing projects in curriculum planning, teaching assessment, career planning, and evidence-based practice.
