In this episode, I spoke with Kimberley Brown, fellowship coordinator at the Department of Anesthesia at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, about what it’s like to manage multiple fellowship programs.
Running a graduate medical education program takes time, effort, patience and support. Managing multiple programs requires a special management style and varying approaches to working with ever-expanding permutations of program leadership, faculty, trainees and other stakeholders.
In this episode, you’ll find out how Kimberley:
- Coordinated the timing and needs of multiple program recruitment/educational cycles.
- Worked with various program directors across subspecialties.
