Faculty Mentors

Upon starting fellowship, fellows are assigned a faculty mentor. At minimum we require they meet twice per academic year, but we highly encourage meetings to occur more often. Below are faculty in the AHFTx program that we recognize as being part of the Clinical Competency Committee, and who may serve as mentors to fellows:
