The UCSF Hospital Medicine fellowships have been training leaders in hospital medicine for a decade, including several prominent members of the UCSF faculty and that of other major academic institutions in the U.S. and Canada. Candidates must have completed training in internal medicine at the time of fellowship entry. We offer the following fellowship types (please note you can only apply to one of the fellowships):

Academic Hospital Medicine is appropriate for those who would like to pursue research or medical education as a component of their career. This one year fellowship is designed to teach hospitalists key skills in leadership, quality improvement, patient safety, curricular development, and medical education and teaching. They spend about one-third of the year service as ward attending on the UCSF hospitalist service, and all complete a basic introduction to clinical research and complete a project suitable for presentation and publication.
