General Internal Medicine Medical Education Fellowship Program


Donna M. Windish, MD, MPH

Welcome to Yale's General Internal Medicine Medical Education Fellowship webpage. Our goal is to train future leaders in medical education who will be self-reflective master clinicians, teachers and scholars. Through a series of focused training experiences in teaching skills, curriculum development and research, graduates of the program will have the foundation to serve as scholars and leaders in their future faculty appointments. Teaching opportunities for fellows span the continuum of undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate medical education. Research opportunities will be based on the individual's interests in medical education. Each fellow will receive mentoring and feedback in every aspect of their training and clinical experiences.
