Rabkin Fellowship in Medical Education

Advancing Careers in Medical Education

The Rabkin Fellowship in Medical Education provides faculty with an opportunity to develop the expertise and skills needed to launch or advance academic administration.


The Rabkin Fellowship was established in 1998 to provide Harvard Medical School faculty the opportunity to develop necessary skills to launch or advance academic careers in medical education and/or academic leadership. The program is well suited for physicians whose careers include, or will include, a substantial amount of teaching.

Individuals participating in the Rabkin Fellowship will:

  • Develop and enhance their skills as medical educators
  • Conduct education research or undertake an educational project in an area of importance of medical education, including UME, GME, and CME/faculty development
  • Learn the principles of effective academic leadership and develop the skills needed to create educational change
  • Become members of a community of educators dedicated to excellence in teaching environments across the continuum of medical education

The Fellowship is open to all faculty with a primary appointment at Harvard Medical School and who currently teach at Harvard Medical School or a Harvard-affiliated institution.
