The Health Policy Leadership Fellowship Program at the Morehouse School of Medicine’s Satcher Health Leadership Institute (SHLI) provides postdoctoral professionals with the specific knowledge, experiences, and skills needed to prepare them for leadership roles in promoting and implementing policies and practices to reduce and ultimately eliminate disparities in health.
The fellowship is a 10-month program, beginning in September and ending in June of the following year. The Health Policy Leadership Fellowship Program will include formal and informal instruction, policy leadership shadowing and learning experiences with government, business, health care, public health, and community partners, monthly Journal club, and health policy leadership forums. In addition, fellows have additional training, practice, teaching, and/or research responsibilities with a supporting academic department or partner, community-based practicum experiences, and a health policy research project. All fellows will also participate in a faculty development program. The fellowship’s major focus areas include leadership development, health policy, and health equity with concentrations in both behavioral and sexual health.
Fellows may be eligible for faculty appointments in departments related to their disciplines or may have additional training opportunities through our partnerships. All fellowship positions are full time. All fellows will receive a $50,000 salary including health and dental insurance, through Morehouse School of Medicine.
