How do I know which category of fellowship is right for me?

All participants are required to attend a session called Introduction to the PSF, which can be done as a face-to- face experience or an online tutorial. During these sessions, participants are guided through a decision tree and set of reflective prompts to help them understand which category of fellowship is right for them. If, after attending this session, you are still unclear about which category is right for you, you can make an appointment to meet with a Faculty Development Coach.
