AUC Graduates Earn 2019 Fellowship Positions

Physicians interested in furthering their expertise in a particular disease area, organ system, or surgical technique often choose to pursue post-graduate fellowship training. But first, they have to apply to and interview with fellowship programs in a process similar to the residency match.

Fellowship matches are announced throughout the year with one of the largest matches—the Medical Specialties Matching Program—occurring at the end of November. AUC is pleased to recognize several graduates who recently matched into fellowships across a range of subspecialties.

Are you an incoming 2019 fellow who isn't listed here, but would like to be? Send an email to with your name and fellowship information and we'd be glad to add you!
