Non-clinical fellowship opportunities for physicians

When we speak of fellowships, we often refer to specific medical subspecialties. However, have you considered some of these types of fellowships that may open up some non-clinical opportunities for your career?
  • Biomedical informatics
  • Faculty development
  • Administrative medicine (health management)
  • Medicolegal (legal medicine)
  • Research medicine
  • Applied epidemiology
  • Pharmacology research
  • International health
  • Wilderness medicine
  • and more...
We often don't think of these types of fellowships, but they may be of interest if you're determined to spend little time practicing clinical medicine and having direct patient care.
