The fellowship is designed as a mentorship model. Fellows will work one-on-one with each staff member over the first 8 months, then they will have 4 months of elective time. This will include office and surgery. Residents and fellows will work together in the weekly half-day Myers Park Clinic as well as on call. Fellows will have graduated responsibility and independence in the OR and on call as they gain experience throughout the year.
Fellows/residents interact one-on-one with staff at all times in the office, OR and on call.
In the Myers Park Clinic setting the fellow serves as a faculty mentor for the residents and is expected to enhance the educational experience of all residents involved.
For emergency room or inpatient consultations at CMC, the junior residents consult the senior resident, who then involves the fellow as appropriate.
