Global Physician Scholar (GPS) Program

ACP's Global Physician Scholar (GPS) Program provides opportunities for early-mid career physicians from outside the United States and Canada to gain expertise in a focused area relating to the prevention, diagnosis, and/or management of a clinical problem in internal medicine and the subspecialties.

Through observation, mentorship, and study of the work of senior faculty physicians, fellows will acquire knowledge, experience, and skills that they can apply, utilize, and disseminate to colleagues upon return to their home country.

Applications are no longer being accepted for the 2019-2020 program year!
