Support Your Life as a Clinical Fellow

The mission of the CFC is to support the unique needs of clinical fellows by fostering professional growth, clarifying available resources and organizing social events. In the past, we have fallen under the Post-Doctoral Association, but this was confusing due to the differences between clinical (ACGME-associated) fellows and non-clinical (strictly research) fellows. Therefore, the CFC was formed under the office of GME to represent you better.
