Harvard Medical School Fellowship in General Medicine and Primary Care

About Our Fellowship

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 290 fellows, who now work in prestigious institutions nationally and internationally. Funded by a federal grant 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 T.H. Chan 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.
