Health Policy Fellowship

Call for Applications due January 9, 2012 

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) and AcademyHealth are seeking applications for their 2012 Health Policy Fellowship.


The aim of the fellowship is to foster collaboration between NCHS staff and visiting scholars. The fellowship allows scholars to conduct new and innovative analyses and participate in developmental and health policy activities related to the design and content of future NCHS surveys and offers access to the data resources provided by the CDC. Post-doctoral scholars and senior investigators will be afforded:

  • Time and funding to conduct their research, leading to the publication of at least one journal article or NCHS publication; and

  • Opportunities to collaborate with NCHS staff on projects of mutual interest, including participation in analytic or methodological development of projects leading to publications.   


Applicants may be at any stage in their careers—from doctoral students to senior investigators. Doctoral students must have completed course work and be at the dissertation phase of their program.



Applicants must demonstrate training and/or experience in health services research and methodology, reflecting disciplines such as:

  • Public Health

  • Public Administration

  • Economics

  • Sociology

  • Health Care Administration

  • Behavioral Sciences


The entirety of the fellowship must be completed at the NCHS headquarters in Hyattsville, Md. Fellows receive a salary commensurate with qualifications and experience. For details, view the FAQ page of the fellowship website.
