Advanced Medical Training for Future Specialists
Maimonides Medical Center offers a wide range of fellowship programs for physicians who wish to specialize in a particular area of care. The training of fellows in all programs focuses on the ACGME "core competencies":
- Patient care
- Medical knowledge
- Practice-based learning and improvement
- Interpersonal and communication skills
- Systems-based practice
Fellows at Maimonides work closely with the resident staff and often function as junior attendings. In addition to clinical training, all fellows participate in a well-organized didactic program of seminars and teaching conferences, which provide a balanced and complete education. Weekly conferences, daily teaching rounds, grand rounds, and Mortality & Morbidity conferences are just some of the sessions regularly scheduled.
Research plays an important role in the development of fellows, with research project requirements particular to each program. Throughout the year, academic conferences and presentations by distinguished scholars, visiting professors and physicians are made available to all fellows.
To support fellowship training programs, the Office of Academic Affairs conducts Development Seminars over the course of the year. These seminars include a range of current topics and issues which affect house-staff training and development. Among these sessions are stress management, practice management, test-taking skills, substance abuse, patient/physician communication, cultural diversity, sexual harassment and ethical issues.
