Frequently Asked Questions
How many hours per week can I expect to dedicate to coursework?
Clinically active providers are busy adult learners. The curriculum is therefore designed to be completed in as little as 5 hours per week. However, we provide enough material and education that one could spend 3-4x that amount of time weekly. This will be determined by your level of prior knowledge, available time, and degree of commitment.
What credentials or certification will I receive after completing this fellowship?
Fellows will receive a certificate from Wild Health. Currently, precision genomic medicine is not recognized by traditional medical certification boards and no additional external certification is provided. We are creating this specialty and we are fully committed to training leaders in this field.
Will all accepted applicants be able to shadow the providers at Wild Health?
Yes. Most shadowing will occur electronically via telemedicine to make it easier on the provider to continue their existing practice with as little disruption as possible. In person shadowing is also an option, but not required.
