Program Overview

Early career physicians often aspire to leadership positions that will enrich their professional careers, complementing outstanding clinical practice: program directors, associate deans of medical education; chief medical officers; or principal investigators/co-investigators on clinical and health services research projects.  Residency training provides only limited preparation for leadership in medical education, clinical services delivery, or research, and yet clinically trained leaders in each of these areas are in high demand.  The CLASS fellowship is designed to provide concentrated preparation in each of these areas by combining mentoring, for-credit education and training, and practical experience on a substantive project in one of three tracks: Clinical Services Leadership (one year), Educational Leadership (one year), or Research (two years).  Graduates of this fellowship will not only have a competitive advantage at being selected into career launching positions in one of these three areas, but will bring a set of valuable skills and experience that benefit the programs and institutions they join.

The goal of the Clinical Leaders and Academic Scholars fellowship is to graduate collaborative and self-directed continuous learners who identify and respond to the most significant clinical, research and educational challenges in the organizations and/or disciplines they serve.    The fellowship is designed to develop a set of core competencies, complemented with specialized expertise depending on the track. It is open to graduates of any ACGME accredited program across all specialties.

INSTRUCTIONS: In order to add a sidebar anchor:

  1. Duplicate the existing item, listed as a 1/6 text field. (Or create a 1/6 column and add a text field, modify the class so it's exactly "additionalAnchor").
  2. Modify the text field inside the 1/6 column. Inside there, modify the HYPERLINK so that it would go to a corresponding section with a "#" in front of it. (Example, we have a "chief" section on the page, then it would make sense to have the hyperlink go to "#chief")
  3. Then change the hyperlink TEXT to a appropriate label.
  4. IMPORTANT: If not done already, go into that CONTAINER that corresponds to your anchor (i.e. Meet The Chiefs), and add an ID matching the anchor's HYPERLINK WITHOUT the "#", i.e. "chief".
  5. (If using side bar widget box, then there's a saved copy of a widget box COLUMN, grab it in the column library, it should 1/6 of a length of a column.)

NOTE: Order added to the sidebar is from last to first.
