Clinical Care

To retain fellows’ clinical expertise, to gain clinical credibility with health system clinicians, and to promote familiarity with health system workflows, personnel and information systems, 10-20% of fellowship time is protected for clinical practice in fellows’ primary specialties. The fellowship program will advocate for fellows to practice as attendings in their area of prior training and will work to find clinical situations allowing this. Clinical moonlighting is allowed but not required.
