Academic Hospital Medicine Fellowship
The goal of the 1-year UCSF Academic Hospital Medicine Fellowship (AHMF) is to train the next generation of hospitalist program directors, quality improvement and patient safety leaders, and directors of clinical education programs for students, residents, and fellow hospitalists.
