We’re excited to share that Monday, June 19 marked the first day of our 2017-2018 Doximity Fellows Program. In the weeks leading up to the program, we received hundreds of applications from some very impressive candidates. In the end, choosing only a handful sparked debates and tough decisions.

Getting to know the current group was inspiring. It includes clinicians of all walks and in all points in their careers, from med students to retired specialists. There are program directors, blog owners, world travelers, and even CNN Heroes -- everyone doing tremendous amounts to help lives and share their stories.

Thank you to all applicants and to our 2017-2018 Doximity Fellows. We look forward to your involvement and work!
