Application Procedure for Obesity Medicine Fellowship
The fellowship accepts applications from July 15th until November 1st for the upcoming academic year. All application materials should be submitted to the Obesity Medicine Fellowship Coordinator within this application window via email. Either in-person or remote interviews will be scheduled on a rolling basis during this period, and the fellowship aims to notify applicants of selection starting December 6th.
All applicants should be board-certified or board-eligible in internal medicine or internal medicine-pediatrics. The clinician track predominantly recruits citizens and permanent residents of the U.S.; however, other applicants may be considered on a case-by-case basis. Due to training grant restrictions, only citizens and permanent residents of the U.S. are eligible to apply to the clinician-investigator track.
