Emerging Leaders Fellowship

The yearlong Emerging Leaders Fellowship offers training, tools, and support for new faculty and those who are transitioning to leadership roles.


STFM’s Emerging Leaders Fellowship is designed specifically for family medicine educators. You'll:

  • Be in a leadership role when you arrive to start the program. Right from the beginning.
  • Lead a team in completion of a project, then present your results
  • Get connected to accomplished leaders who will teach you how to handle difficult people, difficult situations, and share tips on motivating others.
  • Present your work (and yourself) to STFM leadership—the people who are incredible connections and may appoint you to a leadership role within STFM or another organization.
  • Attend the STFM Annual Spring Conference 2 years in a row. Nothing tops this conference for networking, exposure, and presentation experience.
