Fellowship in health care policy and practice – 12 months in the USA

Got an interest in health care policy?

Check out the Harkness fellowship for a paid 12 month period in the USA for you and your family. It’s available to applicants from Australia and New Zealand (due by 8th Sept) and also Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom (due in November).

You will probably need a Master’s degree or a PhD, or at least a bachelor’s degree plus applicable work experience.

They would like “a research proposal that falls within the scope of The Commonwealth Fund’s mission …… the Fund’s priority areas include: expanding access to affordable health insurance coverage; transforming the health care delivery system to improve patient outcomes and control costs through payment reform, primary care, and coordinated care systems, with a particular focus on the sickest and most vulnerable patients; learning from successful international delivery system innovation.”

Love that they are looking for “the kinds of game-changing ideas that can potentially disrupt the current health care system in positive ways.”

  1. Thank you Sonia, have shared this on Linkedin & on Facebook I am sure we have professionals here in Australia who would be knowledgeable in this area. How often do we see people who would benefit from services or medicines but unable due to costs, lack of information, or miscommunication. Clare
