Deviations may occur in the following circumstances:

  • The program identifies areas that need improvement in the fellow's clinical development.
  • The fellow's interests are mainly in clinical medicine.
  • The fellow's research experience and productivity are suboptimal, as judged by the fellow, the fellow's mentor, research committee, and program director.
