Fellowship Programs

About Fellowship Programs

Main Line Health offers fully accredited fellowships. Physicians receive excellent training and are given the tools to meet today's changing health care needs. Our programs offer academic and clinical challenges in an environment of suburban and urban communities that offer excellent prospects for your fellowship, your family and your future in medicine. Applications are processed through ERAS.

Main Line Health is committed to the health and wellness of our employees. With that goal in mind, Main Line Health implemented the “Tobacco and Nicotine Use Impact on Employment Policy” aimed at reducing the use of tobacco and nicotine products among Main Line Health employees. As part of the policy, applicants must certify that they have not used tobacco products or nicotine in any form in the 90-day period prior to submitting an application to Main Line Health, and that they will remain tobacco free during their employment with the health system.

Choose a career in medicine that will make a positive difference in your life and your future.
