What is your favorite part of working with the fellowship program?
Having the opportunity to learn from and with exemplary fellows year after year while building long-lasting professional relationships
Do you have any advice for current or incoming fellows?
- Be proactive with your own learning/education; though you graduated, you will always be a learner and post-graduate training is an amazing opportunity to grow quickly while also learning a lot about yourself.
- Ask questions in the moment and take advantage of any/all opportunities you can; that being said, be sure to be sensitive to your workload and address/discuss any difficulties or setbacks you may have earlier than later.
- We (both faculty and non-faculty advisors/preceptors) are here for you! But, we cannot read your minds and so we encourage keeping an honest and open dialogue throughout your experience.
- Consider taking notes throughout the year(s) for constructive feedback that may help future years of your program and provide that feedback prior to your departure or fellowship conclusion.
- It is okay to be a bit selfish to optimize your experience. This is YOUR fellowship. You earned it.
What are some projects you’ve worked on with fellows over the years?
- Professional and fellow posters for ASHP Midyear as well as AACP
- Continuing Education presentations/recordings
- Collaborative teaching and layered-learning in a case-based seminar-type course for P2 students
- Supporting development of lecture material, as applicable
- Topic discussions and journal clubs with APPE students
- Midyear prep sessions with APPE students
- Shadowing ambulatory care clinic activities; co-precepting APPE students
