HOSPITAL MEDICINE RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP
The Division of Hospital Medicine and Institute for Healthcare Studies at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine announces the availability of a post-doctoral health services research fellowship, with a focus on the specialty of Hospital Medicine.
Individuals who have completed an M.D. or Ph.D are eligible to apply for the two-year, full-time fellowships. The goal is to prepare fellows for a career in health services research. Positions preferably begin between June and September.
The fellowship currently requires completion of six core courses and two elective courses. Fellows may choose to expand the scope of formal coursework in order to complete either a Masters in Public Health (MPH), a Master in Healthcare Quality and Safety, a Master of Science in Epidemiology and Biostatistics (MSEB), or a Master of Science in Clinical Investigation (MSCI).
Research is centered on the following core program areas: Healthcare Equity, Patient Safety, Disability and Rehabilitation, Healthcare Economics, Healthcare Quality, and Health Services Research and Health Policy.
Funding for the fellowships is provided through a National Research Service Award (NRSA) from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, an Advanced Rehabilitation Research Training Award and a Rehabilitation Research and Training Center from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research.
