Life After Residency: Fellowships and Private Practice

Fellowships and Private Practice

Our residents’ career options following residency training are unlimited. Approximately 30-40 percent of our PGY-3 residents each year will pursue fellowship training, and our fellowship placement rate is outstanding! In fact, 100% percent of our residents that have applied for fellowships over the past 10 years have matched into a fellowship of their choice. There are numerous opportunities for scholarly activity in each field of interest, and we provide close mentoring throughout the fellowship application process.

Currently, CMC offers ACGME-approved fellowship training programs in Gastroenterology and Hematology-Oncology.

 

Fellowship placement:

We get many questions about our overall rate of fellowship placement.  Please see the following for details:

This data is from 2007 to 2014 (prior to 2007, most fellowships did not go through the match.  Applicants accepted positions based on when they were offered so data on choices or rank lists is not available prior to that date).

Since 2007…

  • Twenty-nine CMC residents registered for the fellowship match
  • Twenty-eight matched and one successfully scrambled into a position
  • Of the twenty-eight who matched through the NRMP
    • Twenty obtained their first choice
    • Four obtained their second choice
    • Three obtained their third choice
    • One obtained a matched position lower than their third choice

For those residents who do not pursue fellowship training, some will enter ambulatory practice, some will become hospitalists, and some will enter academic medicine.  Many of our residents will choose to stay in the Charlotte region.

Here, you'll find a diverse community with metropolitan amenities in a friendly, smaller town environment.  Because of the high quality of life here, many have chosen to remain or return to the Charlotte community.  Charlotte truly is a great place to live and practice medicine!
