In past years, many DFCM Enhanced Skills fellows have successfully incorporated a DFCM continuing education (CE) or Masters Degree program alongside their clinical fellowship program. Such an arrangement would require a separate application into an academic fellowship or graduate studies program as well as approval of the Enhanced Skills Clinical Program Director. Application deadline for the 2015-16 MScCH (FCM/HPTE) degree is Fall 2014 for a Summer 2015 and January 2015 for the Fall 2015 start. The application deadline for the MPH (FCM) degree is January 2015 for a September 2015 start.
