The Center for the History of Family Medicine (CHFM) sponsors one Fellowship in the History of Family Medicine each year. The Fellowship supports research using the collections of the CHFM to advance understanding and appreciation of the history of Family Medicine.
The Fellowship provides a grant in an amount of up to $1,500 to support travel, lodging and incidental expenses for conducting research at the Center for the History of Family Medicine. Awards cover research conducted between June 1 and December 31 during the year in which the Fellowship is awarded.
Fellows. We encourage interested researchers, including family physicians, other health professionals, historians, scholars, educators, scientists and others to apply for the Fellowship. Individuals interested in the Fellowship should first consult the Center's catalog (336-page PDF file; About PDFs) or contact Center staff to explore the collection and its available resources.
Projects. The proposed project may be on any subject relating to the history of General Practice, Family Practice, or Family Medicine, its practitioners and their role in health and health care in the United States.
In addition, the proposed project must lead to a durable product in any format (e.g., written report or manuscript, CD/DVD program, audio or video recording including oral history interviews, artwork, etc.) of the applicant's choosing.
