The Health and Aging Policy Fellows Program aims to create a cadre of leaders who will serve as change agents in health and aging policy to ultimately improve the health care of older adults. The year-long fellowship offers a rich and unique training and enrichment program that is focused on current policy issues, communication skills development, and professional networking opportunities to provide fellows with the experience and skills necessary to help affect policy.
Candidates with a strong commitment to health and aging issues, leadership potential, and interest in aging-relevant policy work are encouraged to apply to join the next class of Health and Aging Policy Fellows (2018-19).
The program has a broad interdisciplinary focus, and fellows have included physicians, nurses, social workers, psychologists, food scientists, city planners, healthcare administrators, epidemiologists, economists, and lawyers from academic and practice settings, spanning career stages from newly minted PhDs to senior professors and community leaders.
The submission deadline is April 16, 2018. For more information on the program and how to apply, click here.
