When is the application window open?
The application process opens on August 29th, 2018 and closes October 31st, 2018.
How many fellows are there in the program?
Beginning in 2019, we will accept 1 per year.
What about clinic?
Fellows have outpatient clinic once a week with faculty preceptors. Fellows establish and manage their own panel of patients.
What research opportunities are available to me?
All fellows must be involved with research. One of the perks of being at Kaiser is access to one of the largest and most comprehensive electronic medical record systems, providing great opportunity for population-based research. We work closely with the Department of Research and have both programing and statistical support.
Can I afford to live in the Bay Area on a fellow’s salary?
As a highly desirable place to live and work, the Bay Area has always had a relatively high cost of living. We receive a housing one time stipend up to $3,500 to help offset housing costs. The graduate medical education program also pays fellows’ parking fees, medical licensing fees, provides a $1,500 educational stipend each year of fellowship, and a $720 reimbursement for gym membership.
Who can I contact to learn more?
Contact our Program Administrator, Carolyn Vincent at firstname.lastname@example.org or 510-675-6719.
Do fellowship applicants need to be Board-certified or Board-eligible?
It is not expected that all applicants (especially those still in residency) will have passed their Board exams. Fellows will work with the Program Director to arrange time to take their board exam during fellowship (at the fellow’s expense).
