Faculty Fellowship in Medical Education

Enhance your teaching skills and advance the field of health care education with the Faculty Fellowship in Medical Education at Mount Auburn Hospital.

The one-year fellowship is open to all faculty based at a Harvard Medical School (HMS)-affiliated institution.

Become a Leader in Education

When you become a medical education Fellow at Mount Auburn, you join a community of educators striving to improve clinical teaching—and ultimately patient care. You’ll:

  • Develop and enhance your skills as an educator
  • Conduct scholarly research or an educational project
  • Support other fellows as leaders and change agents within their academic communities
  • Gain experience and skills to launch or advance your academic career

You’ll be part of an elite group; 64 fellows have graduated from our program since it was established in 1999.

Program Overview

During your fellowship year, you’ll continue with your regular responsibilities; you’ll be expected to devote about 20 percent of your working time to the fellowship.

Discuss a broad array of historical and contemporary medical education topics during regular fellowship seminars with other Mount Auburn Hospital Fellows. On four Fridays during the academic year, you’ll meet with fellows from the Rabkin Fellowship in Medical Education at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and the Harvard Medical School Academy Fellowship in Medical Education.

You’ll also complete a fellowship project that answers an important question in medical education and present your findings at HMS Medical Education Day.


Fellowships are competitive. A request for applications typically goes out in January each year. You’ll be asked to submit:

  • Personal statement
  • The topic you wish to pursue in your scholarly research or educational project
  • A letter of support from your department or division chief
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Letters of reference
