Individualized Support

We know mentorship is imperative in guiding the next generation of academically oriented subspecialists, and we have a program in place to support your career planning and development.

Our graduates tout their mentorship as one of the most valuable experiences in our program.

Mentorship Structure

You’ll meet with your mentor regularly based on your needs. This relationship is longitudinal and can ideally evolve into a peer mentorship as you progress in your career.

You also can form relationships with mentors outside our fellowship and division through partnerships with the UW School of Medicine and Public Health, other schools at UW-Madison, and UW Health.

The Ways We Mentor You

Career Development

Program leaders advise and connect you with prior graduates who are currently employed in your desired career.

Quality Improvement

Participate in the Department of Medicine’s QI Curriculum for Fellowship and present at the UW Health QI Symposium.


Throughout your fellowship, you'll meet regularly with your research mentor and other faculty members inside and outside the fellowship program. They will review your progress and provide research and career advice.
