Eligibility

The Australian–American Health Policy Fellowships are designed for U.S. health policy researchers and practitioners who are committed to improving health care policy and practice. Successful candidates will demonstrate exceptional personal and intellectual qualities, a high standard of professional achievement, and significant potential to influence health policy in Australia and the United States. There are no formal age limits; however, the focus of the fellowships is on mid-career development, so successful candidates are likely to be in their late-20s to mid-40s. Candidates should propose research studies that respond to the 2015–16 Fellowship Areas of Interest.

All applicants must also meet the following criteria:

  • be a citizen of the United States;
  • be a mid-career health services researcher or practitioner (e.g., a physician, decision maker in a managed care organization or other private health care organization, government official or policy analyst, or journalist);
  • have a demonstrated expertise in health policy issues and track record of informing health policy through research, policy analysis, health services, or clinical leadership;
  • have completed a master's degree or doctorate (or the equivalent thereof) in health services research, health administration, health policy, or a related discipline, such as economics or political science; and
  • if academically based, be at a mid-career level (e.g., research fellow to associate professor).

Fellowships are not awarded to support basic research or study for an academic degree. Applications are welcome equally from men and women and members of any ethnic group, regardless of physical abilities.
