The mission of the Georgetown University School of Medicine's Cura Personalis Fellowship is twofold:

  1. Develop and apply a strong foundation of theory and practice in topics around physician professional identity formation
  2. Challenge learners to engage their own professional goals and skill sets.

As an innovative teaching-learning development program, clinicians will dive deeper into the varying components of physicianship, to include core learning domains of leadership, wellbeing/mindfulness, and lifelong learning. 

Successful completion of the 1-year fellowship program culminates in a certificate of completion, a honorarium, and an invitation to progress on to the advanced longitudinal development program.

Any Georgetown-affiliated physician or resident is eligible to apply for participation in the Cura Personalis Fellowship. Residents must have at least 4 years of training left at the time of application.
