Program Description

The fellowship is organized through the Office of Graduate Medical Education at Madigan Army Medical Center.

A unique leader development pathway for military physicians, the fellowship provides a core curriculum of education fundamentals, allows the full breadth of clinical practice and completion of an advanced master’s degree program.

The Leader and Faculty Development Fellowship at Madigan Army Medical Center has been in existence since 1982. The fellowship has trained over 100 physicians. Many of these physicians have gone on to leadership positions throughout military medicine, including academic, managerial, and strategic level positions An institutional charter development in 2012 and updated in 2022 serves as a guide that outlines the core program requirements and ensures the fellowship’s continued success.
