It's a three semester thing. First part is classroom, second part you have a preceptor and third part, you're on your own but have a preceptor reference pretty much. After the first six months ish, you have a lot of autonomy on your own so that's probably what your friend meant when they said it's a six month fellowship. The fellowships are all 1 year then you have to give 1 year back to the hospital for training you, so it's a two year commitment. I did find out that the Cohen's Talent Aquisition people don't want people who haven't taken their boards yet, because it's risky whether or not they'll pass in time for the fellowship to start, so I'm out of the running on this one. I am interviewing for the ED one at Manhassat on Tuesday though. Good luck to you!
