Fellowship

The fellowship represents the highest rung on the postdoctoral training ladder. To qualify for a fellowship, a physician must have first completed a residency in a base specialty. The training and curriculum is narrowly focused on a very specific discipline and includes research and the acquisition of specialized skills. The years of training vary according to the dictates of accreditation standards.

A wide variety of fellowship programs are available with the greatest number in the allopathic profession. On the allopathic side for example, a physician who has completed an emergency medicine residency is qualified to take a fellowship program in undersea and hyperbaric medicine.

A list of osteopathic fellowship programs currently offered by hospitals in the Statewide Campus System - inclusive of the years of training - is provided on the table below.
