The UNC Faculty Development Fellowship seeks faculty from family practice residency programs (including community-hospital-based residencies, university departments of family medicine, and military programs who:
- are residency-trained family physicians in their early years of full-time faculty work. Third year residents who will be serving in a faculty role after graduation may apply, but preference is given to family physicians already serving in a faculty role at the time of application.
plan a career in academic family medicine
- demonstrated interest and willingness to complete scholarly projects that require a substantial time commitment in addition to the time spent in Chapel Hill.
While the fellowship experience is most valuable for those faculty who have completed at least a year in the faculty role prior to the start of the fellowship, any family physician in a faculty position involving teaching residents or medical students is welcome to apply. We also generally limit a residency program to one fellow per year.
Fellows and/or their home programs are asked to contribute the following resources:
