Fellows Educator Development Conference

The Emory University Department of Medicine's Fellows Educator Development Conference is a didactic conference that focuses on giving fellows the skills they need to succeed in the academic clinician-educator position. The program, led by David Schulman, MD, was launched in the 2015-2016 academic year by the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine. The conference is now available to all Department of Medicine fellows. Fellows who attend two-thirds of the sessions will receive a certificate documenting their attendance.

The conference runs from September to June, with meetings on the following dates:
