Jeremiah A. Barondess Fellowship in the Clinical Transaction

We are not currently accepting applications for this award.

The New York Academy of Medicine, in collaboration with the ACGME, is pleased to annually present the Jeremiah A. Barondess Fellowship in the Clinical Transaction. The clinical transaction consists of three core skills: obtaining a comprehensive and accurate clinical history; performing a thorough and accurate physical examination; and engaging in a rigorous process of clinical reasoning from the data acquired through these techniques.

The Fellowship supports junior faculty members in internal medicine with a commitment to develop a program that enhances this fundamental element of clinical care through education innovation. It annually supports one fellowship focused on innovative approaches to educating medical students and residents, while promoting the development of faculty members with special interest and expertise in education in the clinical transaction. The Fellowship promotes supportive institutional structures and processes, with a specific focus on building successful educational experiences in the clinical transaction.

Through the Internal Medicine Milestone Project, the internal medicine community (with support and guidance from the ACGME and the American Board of Internal Medicine) has identified four milestones that relate directly to elements of the Clinical Transaction (Milestones: Patient Care 1 (1); Professionalism 1 (16); Professionalism 3 (18); Professionalism 4 (19), and Interpersonal and Communication Skills 1 (20)). The Barondess Fellowship is intended to complement this effort by supporting systematic efforts to develop internists who, by the end of their training, have achieved the aspirational goals for internists in each of these areas.


The New York Academy of Medicine, in collaboration with the ACGME, invites applications from medical schools, departments of medicine, and medical school-affiliated teaching hospitals with ACGME-accredited internal medicine residency programs in the United States. Candidates should have exemplary clinical skills and a commitment to innovative teaching focused on the development of excellence in the clinical transaction. The Fellowship is for junior faculty, with key responsibilities for developing, directing, and teaching in a robust, innovative clinical training program. Clinical fellows or senior residents in their last year of training may apply, but they must have a junior faculty position at the start of the Fellowship funding period on July 1, 2018.

Applications must be submitted online through The New York Academy of Medicine. The Fellowship Committee will review all applications and select the awardee each year. The Academy will award the Fellowship to the selected nominee at the 2018 ACGME Annual Educational Conference. The Fellowship will support innovative educational efforts and no less than 25% of the awardee's (nominee's) time. In addition to a primary focus on the fundamental clinical skills, candidate programs may wish to include consideration of the impacts on educational and training programs of new factors in the clinical environment, such as the electronic medical record, patient questionnaires, and the use of electronic communication between doctor and patient. The application should address how the Fellowship will have a lasting impact on the program.

One Fellowship will be awarded in 2018 on a competitive basis for a two-year period. The award for the Fellowship will be $50,000 ($25,000 per year for two years). Progress Reports will be required at the end of Years 1 and 2.

The application period for the 2018 Jeremiah A. Barondess Fellowship in the Clinical Transaction will open in September 2017, at which time application details and links will be updated on this page.
