Internal Medicine

 Clinician-Teacher Fellowships

At Internal Medicine Residency Spokane (IMRS), we place a high value on education. Ensuring that our learners receive the best possible individualized education requires training outstanding teachers. Since 2013, IMRS is proud to support our Clinician Teacher Fellowship program.

The program provides recent resident graduates an opportunity to dedicate a full year to developing their medical teaching skills. Experiences include house staff and clinic attending, leading student and resident lectures, reviewing and sharing literature on medicine and learning methods, and developing personal interests, research projects, and longitudinal teaching projects.

Teaching fellows also gain administrative experience, assisting in our application and interviewing processes, and providing input on ACGME core competency evaluations.

The position is an excellent opportunity to acquire skills for career advancement in academic medicine. All of our former teaching fellows have either advanced into faculty positions or subspecialty fellowships.
