The goal of this fellowship is to train primary care physicians for research-focused academic careers. This two to three year primary care research fellowship provides participants with the knowledge, skills, and experience to plan, fund, complete and disseminate quality research. The curriculum includes course work in the UNC School of Public Health, seminars in the campus’ K-30 sponsored research curriculum, weekly works-in-progress seminars, in-depth hands-on involvement and leadership in research projects, and mentoring by clinical and research faculty. Housed within the Sheps Center, the program also receives support from the primary care clinical departments of the UNC School of Medicine.
