The Fellowship curriculum consists of six core content areas:

At the end of the Fellowship, participants should be able to meet the objectives listed under each content area.
Fellowship participants are expected to complete a project of their choosing during their Fellowship term.
This project can be related to the participant's everyday teaching and clinical practice. Projects provide an opportunity to apply what is being learned and are completed with the support of a faculty mentor.
