Australian-American Health Policy Fellowship

On behalf of the Australian Department of Health, The Commonwealth Fund is pleased to announce the Australian–American Health Policy Fellowship. From 2003–2009, the Australian-American Health Policy Fellowship was known as the Packer Policy Fellowships, named in honor of the late Mr. Kerry Packer AC, former chairman of Consolidated Press Holdings Limited. Read our brochure for more information.

The Commonwealth Fund has, since 2004, proudly co-sponsored the Australian-American Health Policy Fellowship (formerly the Packer Policy Fellowships). This program offers a unique opportunity for outstanding, mid-career U.S. professionals—academics, government officials, clinical leaders, decision makers in managed care and other private health care organizations, and journalists—to spend up to 10 months in Australia conducting research and working with Australian health policy experts on issues relevant to both countries. A total of 20 fellows, who profiles can be viewed by clicking on the button to the right, have participated in the Australian-American Health Policy Fellowship with the Fund’s support.

At this time the program is undergoing a formal review and no fellowship is being offered in 2017-18. We look forward to keeping you updated on future funding opportunities.
