Junior Faculty Development Position - Cone Health Family Medicine

Mission

The Cone Health Family Medicine Junior Faculty Development Position provides the opportunity for growth for recent family medicine residency graduates, guiding them to become future leaders, teachers and researchers in family medicine field.

Overview

The Cone Health Family Medicine Junior Faculty Development Position started in 2012. It was designed to give family medicine graduates a one-year opportunity to learn more about academic medicine, hone their patient care skills and provide protected time to explore a personal medical interest. This position transitioned to a family medicine junior faculty development position in 2015. 

We tailor this educational program to individual's career goals and objectives with emphasis on resident and medical student teaching either during the inpatient rotation, at the Family Medicine Center or during noon conferences. 

This position has been an excellent addition to our residency program, bringing fresh perspectives to residents' lives, education and patient care.

Curriculum

The Cone Health Family Medicine Junior Faculty Development Fellowship curriculum covers four areas: clinical skills, teaching skills, scholarly skills, and administrative skills.

Clinical Skills

The fellow sees patients in our FMC 5-6 half days a week and is asked to identify clinical areas that he/she wants to develop during the fellowship (i.e., prenatal care, maternal health, international health, dermatology and other procedural clinical skills).

Teaching Skills

Fellows are expected to have at least two clinical/conference presentations per year during our mid-day conference session. Fellows are also expected to participate in resident clinic and video-precepting, and they may also serve as attending on the inpatient service.

Scholarly Activity Skills

Fellows are encouraged to participate in scholarly activities such as quality improvement or research projects, clinical publications, and conference attendance and presentations, such as Society of Teachers of Family Medicine (STFM) or the American Academy of Family Physicians' (AAFP) national conferences. Our fellows are encouraged to work with interested residents on their projects.

Administrative Skills

Fellows are encouraged to participate in our weekly faculty meeting. Fellows will have 1-2 half days per week for personal administrative activities.

Other Opportunities
