To honor the visionary role of Jeremiah A. Barondess, MD in medical education, and to recognize his teaching of clinical skills at the bedside to generations of medical students and residents, the New York Academy of Medicine in collaboration with the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) recently established The Jeremiah A. Barondess Fellowship in the Clinical Transaction. The Fellowship provides resources to junior faculty in internal medicine with a university appointment to enhance the clinical skills of physicians in training. It supports an annual fellowship focused on innovative approaches to educating medical students, training residents, and encouraging the development of faculty 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.
