Expectations for the Fellows are:

  • 9-month commitment (no meetings in January, July or December)
  • 80% attendance at weekly sessions
    • Fellows from outside Augusta have successfully video-conferenced into weekly sessions in the past and agreed to attend certain sessions in person.
    • Weekly sessions are typically 4:00-5:30PM.  In the past, some fellow cohorts have elected to start a half hour earlier or later.    
  • Attend Health Sciences Education Day (typically March)
  • Attend other teaching-related events (e.g., Education Grand Rounds, visiting professors talks) as schedules permit
  • Completion of educational scholarly project

Funding:

Faculty applicants negotiate with their department to have release time to attend weekly training sessions and to develop a project. The department financially supports this release time. 

Eligibility:

Priority for fellowship is given to MCG faculty applicants. However, the best cohorts for the fellowship have included fellows from a variety of backgrounds, including faculty from various health sciences colleges and clerkship coordinators.  Faculty from Summerville campus who have an interest in health sciences-related education would be a welcome addition to the group. 

Key Dates:

Call for application: July 1

Applications due: September 1

Notifications: October

Start fellowship: First week in February

Contact Ralph Gillies or 706-721-8982 for additional details about the fellowship.
