THE GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY—UNITY HEALTH CARE
FELLOWSHIP IN HEALTH CENTER
A number of family physicians pursue careers in community health care, and many
assume positions of leadership, often with little formal training or preparation
for their roles. This one-year fellowship is designed to train future physician
leaders in community health care, with a specific objective of training future
medical directors of community health centers. The fellowship is co-sponsored by
the Georgetown University Department of Family Medicine and Unity Health Care,
Inc, a non-profit group of community health centers in the District of
Columbia. In order to achieve national exposure and impact, we also collaborate
with NACHC and the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved. The fellow
will also provide community-oriented primary care in a medically underserved
community, and receive faculty development training, in preparation to be a role
model and future teacher of medical students, residents and other health
professionals. The fellow will receive a faculty appointment as an instructor
in the Department of Family Medicine of Georgetown University.
THE GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY FELLOWSHIP
IN PRIMARY CARE HEALTH POLICY
Washington D.C. offers unique advantages for the study of health policy at the
national level. In over twenty years of existence the Department of Family
Medicine of the Georgetown University School of Medicine has established ties
with many of the institutions in Washington of importance in primary care
policy. We are now offering a fellowship of one or two years for a family
practice residency graduate to study primary care health policy. The
centerpiece of the fellowship involves experiences with private health policy
foundations and government agencies with a focus on primary care; we are
fortunate to have a relationship with the Robert Graham Center: Policy Studies
in Primary Care and Family Practice of the American Academy of Family Physicians
as a major collaborator. In addition the fellow will gain experience in patient
care in a community health center, and in faculty development through
participation in a variety of activities of the department and through a
longitudinal curriculum for our fellows.
