Here's the list

Common fellowship paths include:
  • Geriatrics
  • Adolescent Medicine
  • Sports Medicine
  • Rural Medicine
  • Obstetrics FM Fellowship
  • Research Fellowship
  • Substance Abuse
Additional uncommon fellowships include:
  • Addiction medicine
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Hospice and Palliative Medicine
  • Community Medicine
  • Emergency Medicine
  • Advanced Hospital Medicine
  • Health Care Research and Policy Development
  • Hospitalist Fellowship
Of note, Hospitalist fellowship has been recently added to the options, not many programs are out there but it's increasingly becoming more popular as more hospitalist jobs are becoming available and many FM graduates opting for it because of the better income ($200K-$300K annual).
