The University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison offers the following academic development opportunities for faculty, educators and staff.
Centennial Scholars Program
The goal of the Centennial Scholars Program is to develop faculty whose diversity enhances the quality of education and research at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health, and who may serve as visible and available role models for students and trainees, especially those from underrepresented minority backgrounds.
For more information, contact Patricia Kokotailo, Associate Dean for Faculty Development and Faculty Affairs, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Primary Care Faculty Development Program
The Primary Care Faculty Development Program (PCFDP) is aimed at developing primary care faculty for teaching and leadership roles in community-based settings and for enhancing community based research skills.
The PCFDP Fellowship is a yearlong program (October-April) that prepares clinical preceptors to effectively teach medical students and residents within the context of their own practice settings. The Fellowship consists of a series of weekend sessions held at the Pyle Center on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus.
For application information, contact Patricia Greene, program coordinator, at email@example.com.
Family Medicine Research Fellowship
The Primary Care Research Fellowship trains primary care physicians and PhD scientists interested in careers in medical research related to the organization, delivery, or effectiveness of primary health care and preventive medicine. Fellows take courses in epidemiology, statistics and research methods, with the goal of obtaining an NIH or other substantive grant. This is a full-time, post-doctoral research training position with two year commitment.

Integrative Medicine Fellowship
The Academic Integrative Medicine (AIM) Fellowship was created in 2003 to tap into the array of educational resources available through the University of Wisconsin Integrative Medicine Program.
