The fellowship includes coursework from the Duke University Master of Health Sciences in Clinical Leadership program, primary care preceptor training, a mentored transformation project, and a fellowship seminar series. Fellows will have 30 percent committed time to complete program requirements.

The deadline to apply is Feb. 1, 2019. Learn more and apply.
