Fellows' College Council
In partnership with Associate Chair for Fellowship Programs, Dr. Glenn Chertow, the Fellows' College Council is a fellow-led committee that forms new initiatives, social opportunities and projects that support all fellows. Council members act as a liaison to Department of Medicine leadership, and have the opportunity to work on projects aimed at improving the fellowship experience and well-being of their community. Contact us if you're interested in joining!
