Fellows' Council

Fellows' Council is a fellow-led committee that meets to form new initiatives, social opportunities, and projects that support all fellows. Council members act as a liaison to the fellowship leadership and have the opportunity to work on projects to improve their community's fellowship experience and well-being.

Vision Statement

The Fellows' Council envisions a fellowship community where every member feels supported, valued, and empowered to thrive. Through collaboration and initiative, we aim to create meaningful connections, develop innovative solutions to challenges, and foster a culture of inclusivity and well-being. By serving as a conduit between fellows and program leadership, we strive to amplify voices, address needs, and enhance the overall fellowship experience for all.


  • Lead three Fellow Town Hall meetings (August 2024, January 2025, and May 2025). The discussions here will allow engagement of the entire fellowship community and inform activities for the year. 
  • Plan engaging social events and networking opportunities. 
  • Organize charitable initiatives and community outreach projects.
  • Advocate for fellow interests to hospital leadership. 
  • Create a peer resource addressing the challenges encountered by fellows.

Big /Lil' Sib Program

Big /Lil' Sib Program

The Big/Lil' Sib Program matches incoming first-year fellows with second or third-year fellows from outside of their divisions. Incoming fellows have an opportunity to connect with their Big Sib before they arrive to campus, and during orientation. Our hope is that this connection helps foster a broader sense of community among fellows and provides an opportunity to expand both professional and social networks.

Social Events

The Council has discretionary funds to plan activities for the fellow community. In the past, they have organized yoga sessions, hikes, quiz nights, and happy hours. Contact your division representative with activities you'd like to see.
