Please share this widely with graduate and medical students, faculty and researchers interested in history of family medicine.


The Center for the History of Family Medicine (CHFM) is proud to announce its tenth annual Fellowship in the History of Family Medicine. Named in honor of former AAFP Foundation executive director Sandra L. “Sandy” Panther, the Sandra L. Panther Fellowship in the History of Family Medicine encourages interested family physicians, residents, students, other health professionals, historians, scholars, educators, scientists and others to apply.

The successful applicant will be awarded a fellowship grant in an amount of up to $2,000 to support travel, lodging and incidental expenses relating to research on a project of their choosing dealing with any aspect of the history of General Practice, Family Practice, or Family Medicine in the United States. The fellowship will be awarded directly to the individual applicant and not to the institution where he or she may be employed.

The deadline to apply is by 5:00 PM (CDT), Sunday, March 31, 2020. All applications will be reviewed in April, with the Fellowship award announced by May 31, 2020.
