The Bravewell Fellowship is designed to support exceptional medical doctors, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants with demonstrated leadership ability, an interest in integrative medicine and the potential to have an impact on improving the service and delivery of health care and increasing the health and wellbeing of patients.
The University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine is partnering with the Bravewell Collaborative to support the Bravewell Fellowship program. The Bravewell Fellowship combines the rigorous and rich curricula of the U of A's Fellowship for Integrative Medicine (UAFIM) with a supervised clinical experience at a Bravewell Clinical Network center and creates a network of high achieving integrative medicine practitioners.
The Bravewell Fellowship is designed to enhance the integrative medical education of emerging leaders of medicine. Bravewell is seeking medicial practitioners with a demonstrated interest in making a lasting impact within the field of medicine.
This fellowship is available to physicians (MD and DO), nurse practitioners and physician assistants who will begin the UAFIM program in January 2011 and graduate in December 2012. Interested applicants must contact a Bravewell Clinical Network center to receive a letter of endorsement as a requirement of submitting an application.
The Bravewell Fellowship covers the UAFIM tuition, provides a supervised 120-hour clinical experience and a Bravewell Clinical Network center, and covers the lodging for three 1.5-day Bravewell Fellow Gathering events which immediately precede the UAFIM Residential Week programs in Tucson, Arizona. Additional costs associated with the Fellowship studies including supplemental learning materials, travel, and UAFIM Residential Week lodging and other incidental expenses are not covered by the Bravewell Fellowship and are the responsibility of the Bravewell Fellow.
