Paul A. Godley Art of Medicine Fellowship
What is The Paul A. Godley Art of Medicine Fellowship?
Founded in 2019, the Paul A. Godley Art of Medicine Fellowship awards $2,500 to two rising second-year medical students, in good academic standing, interested in working to ensure the curriculum and culture at UNC SOM is inclusive. Interested students should also have a passion for working with social justice and the arts.
This fellowship is supported through an ongoing partnership between UNC SOM and the Ackland Art Museum, with the goal of using art to discuss issues of racism in medicine. Fellowship recipients will work with School of Medicine faculty to integrate this work as a curricular enhancement of several core courses.
Values & Expectations
(a) Leadership. Serve in a leadership capacity for 12 months to facilitate an open line of communication between the student body and the SOM regarding diversity initiatives.
(b) Innovation. Organize a curricular activity for the broader UNC SOM community that uses art to discuss issues of racism in medicine. Planning for these events must occur during the summer in order to ensure that the programs are ready to be delivered during the Fall Semester.
- Students must be in MS1 foundation year at time of application
- Applicants must be in good academic standing
- Fellowship recipients must be enthusiastically engaged with planning proposed curricular activity starting June 1
