Fellowship Year 3

A third year of fellowship is required for research fellows. The fellow continues the research project and will write one or more abstracts and manuscripts describing the results for presentation at a regional or national meeting.

Some clinical fellows who are interested in a specific subspecialty or in medical education might choose to extend their training by one year after consultation with the program director, division faculty, and the institutional graduate medical education officials. For such fellows, attendance at classes at the University of Iowa focused on achieving a Masters or Certificate degree in Medical Education might be a good complement to their training.  Extension of training is subject to the fellow’s visa or US residency status and is addressed on a case-by-case basis.
