This fellowship is a mark of distinction representing the highest level of competency, integrity and knowledge for those in the practice of internal medicine. The honor is awarded to physicians who apply the most up-to-date scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to diagnosis and treat their patients across the broad spectrum of health ranging from everyday wellness issues to complex illness.

Fellows are recommended by their peers for achieving excellence in medicine and for contributing to the broader community in which the internist lives and practices. There are currently 38 practicing internists in New Hampshire who have reached this achievement.
