Become a Health Policy Fellow
The NCHS/AcademyHealth Health Policy Fellowship program brings experts in health services research-related disciplines to the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) to conduct studies that address important issues in health policy.
The selected fellow will have full access to NCHS data resources and several opportunities for professional development, collaboration, mentoring partnerships, and dissemination. During their 13-month tenure, the fellow will work closely with a NCHS staff member who can provide technical expertise related to the fellow’s research, assist in accessing NCHS data systems and other resources, and help identify other collaborative opportunities within the center.
The 2016 fellow will also:
- Present research at a NCHS seminar
- Learn the fundamentals of health policy development and implementation at AcademyHealth’s Health Policy Orientation
