The Division of Hospital Medicine and Center for Education in Health Sciences at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine announce 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 fellowship. The goal is to prepare fellows for a career in health services and outcomes research.  Positions preferably begin between June and September.

All fellows must enroll in a degree program.  The fellowship supports tuition for the following degrees:  Master of Science in Health Services and Outcomes Research (MSHSOR), Masters in Public Health (MPH), Master of Science in Healthcare Quality and Patient Safety (MSHQPS), a Master of Science in Epidemiology and Biostatistics (MSEB), or a Master of Science in Clinical Investigation (MSCI).  In addition, fellows conduct a research project, mentored by faculty.  Current research areas include: Patient Safety, Healthcare Quality, Transitions of Care, Simulation-based Training, End-of-Life Care, and Inter-professional Teamwork. 

The fellowship offers the unique opportunity to become a member of one the premier hospitalist programs in the nation.  Fellows will receive mentorship from experts in their field and work closely with research faculty in the Institute for Public Health and Medicine.

Funding for the fellowships is provided by the Division of Hospital Medicine and through a National Research Service Award (NRSA) from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.  Information about the application can be found here.
