New Health System Impact Fellowship

Dear colleagues,

It is with great excitement that we write to share the announcement for the NEW Health System Impact Fellowship funding opportunity with you. Please visit ResearchNet for the funding opportunity details.

As you may know, the Health System Impact (HSI) Fellowship is a key component of the Training Modernization Strategy for Health Services and Policy Research (HSPR). The HSI Fellowship aims to prepare PhD graduates of HSPR and related programs (e.g., population and public health, economics, political science, epidemiology) for stronger career readiness with greater impact. It does so by expanding the traditional training environment to include health system and related organizations. Specifically, the HSI Fellowship supports 1 and 2 year experiential learning opportunities for post-doctoral fellows within health system and related organizations (including public health organizations), professional development training (in areas such as leadership, change management and implementation, communication), and participation in a national cohort of fellows and health system leaders from across the country.

We are very pleased to report that the HSI Fellowship program has witnessed tremendous interest from health system and related organizations that are excited to host fellows for experiential learning opportunities. Over 30 organizations have submitted partner profiles for our host partner organization database, which is a tool to help match interested applicants and host partner organizations. 

The HSI Fellowship program reflects a partnership between the CIHR Institutes of Health Services and Policy Research (IHSPR), Aging (IA), Aboriginal Peoples’ Health (IAPH), Circulatory and Respiratory Health (ICRH), and Population and Public Health (IPPH), in collaboration with the Fonds de recherche du Québec -Santé (FRQS), Mitacs and its Elevate program, and the Canadian Health Services and Policy Research Alliance (CHSPRA) – each of whom is committed to supporting novel training opportunities that help prepare the next generation of health system leaders for optimal impact. Our goal now is to raise interest and awareness among post-docs (and soon to be PhD graduates) who may be interested in this opportunity.  We are sharing the HSI Fellowship funding opportunity and information webinar details with you and appreciate your help sharing them with your respective communities and networks. Thank you!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Meg McMahon, Program Director.
