The Harvard Medical School Fellowship in General Medicine and Primary Care offers 2-year academic fellowships to prepare talented physicians for careers in academic medicine. Since the program began in 1979, we have trained over 250 fellows, who now work in prestigious institutions nationally and internationally. Funded by federal grants, private foundations, and participating clinical institutions, the Program offers each Fellow an appointment at Harvard Medical School and one of its affiliated hospitals or departments. All fellows qualifying for acceptance to the Harvard School of Public Health pursue a rigorous curriculum that can lead to a Master of Public Health or Master of Science degree. Each Fellow is expected to design, conduct, present, and publish several original investigative projects that lay the foundation for future careers as leaders in general medicine and research. The fellowship is currently led by Christina Wee, MD, MPH at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Jennifer Haas, MD, MSPH at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
As a graduate of our fellowship program, Dr. Wee is very well prepared for her new leadership role. She has been the PI of several funded R01s, and she recently received a K24 mentoring grant. She has also received major awards at HMS and SGIM for her research mentoring, and she was elected this year to the American Society for Clinical Investigation for her superb research accomplishments.
