UF General Internal Medicine (UFGIM) Fellowship
Through innovative mentorship, we aim to inspire clinicians, teachers, and researchers with a passion for generalism.
This program is a new, one-year, non-ACGME accredited program, the first of its kind in Florida.
Fellowship training in General Internal Medicine can provide the pivotal additional skill set needed for career advancement and sustainability in academic medicine. Our program is suited to prospective faculty interested in careers in inpatient or ambulatory medicine or even future sub-specialization in internal medicine.
This program aims to foster the professional development of academic internists. Our mission is to create a training environment that builds upon foundational internal medicine residency training and introduces immersive experiences in collaborative research, the teaching of trainees, leadership, and management.

As academic internists, we have the primary responsibility for training students and residents in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of acute and chronic diseases typically encountered in General Internal Medicine practice. Our clinics are highly resourced and offer immunizations, point of care testing, health coaching, and co-management of diabetes, anticoagulation, and hypertension in conjunction with clinical pharmacists at each site. We strongly emphasize evidence-based practice, disease prevention, and health promotion.
