The University of Pittsburgh General Internal Medicine Fellowship Program is a nationally prominent, competitive two-year program designed to prepare future leaders and innovators in academic general internal medicine. Two types of fellowships are offered - the Clinician-Researcher Fellowship and the Academic Clinician-Educator Scholars (ACES) Fellowship - each of which represents one of the major career paths of academic generalists. These fellowships have outstanding records of training accomplished leaders in research and education. In fact, 82% of the program’s 73 graduates from 1983 through June 2014 remain in academic medicine, including 90% of the 31 graduates from 2004 to 2014. Graduates hold positions at well-respected institutions all over the country, including Pitt; University of Pennsylvania; Penn State; Harvard; Brown University; Johns Hopkins; University of California, San Francisco; University of Southern California; University of California, Los Angeles; Mayo Clinic; Cleveland Clinic; Case Western Reserve; Emory University; Mount Sinai Hospital; Einstein Medical Center; and the Veterans Health Administration central office. Among the program’s graduates are a chief executive officer and a chief medical officer of major health care systems, a department chair, a vice chair, an assistant dean, several internal medicine section chiefs, three national leaders of federal health programs, a past Society of General Internal Medicine president, and numerous training program directors.
