Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES:

Part-time faculty development fellowship programs have trained large numbers of new physician faculty for family medicine education programs. This study reviews data from three part-time fellowship programs to determine how well the programs train new faculty and the academic success of fellowship graduates.

METHODS:

Part-time fellowship programs at Michigan State University, the University of North Carolina, and the Faculty Development Center in Waco, Tex, sent written surveys to graduates as part of routine follow-up studies. Graduates were asked to report their current status in academic medicine, how they spend their time, measures of academic productivity, and assessments of how well their training prepared them for their current academic positions. Data were complied at each institution and sent to Michigan State University for analysis.

RESULTS:

The majority of graduates (76%) have remained in their academic positions, and half (49%) teach in medically underserved settings. Graduates report high levels of satisfaction with the training they received. Thirty-two percent of graduates have published peer-reviewed articles, and almost 50% have presented at peer-reviewed meetings.

CONCLUSIONS:

Part-time fellowship programs have been successful at training and retaining large numbers of new faculty for family medicine.
