Statistical information plays an important role in guiding actions and policies to improve the health of the American people. With this guiding principle, the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) and AcademyHealth have collaborated for almost two decades for the NCHS/AcademyHealth Health Policy Fellowship program. Now accepting applications for the 2017 cycle, this fellowship program brings experts in health services research-related disciplines to the NCHS to conduct studies to address important issues in health policy.
The selected fellow will gain full access to NCHS data resources as well as several opportunities for professional development, collaboration, mentoring partnerships, and dissemination. During the 13 month tenure, the selected fellow will work closely with an 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 2017 Fellow will also:
-Present research at an NCHS seminar
-Learn the fundamentals of health policy development and implementation at AcademyHealth’s Health Policy Orientation
-Attend and present research at AcademyHealth conferences, including the National Health Policy Conference and Annual Research Meeting
