Support for Program Direction and Fellowships, 2002-03


Pervasive racial and ethnic disparities in health and health care highlight the need for trained, dedicated physicians who can lead efforts to improve health care access and quality for minority populations. The Fellowship in Minority Health Policy has played an important role in addressing this need. Under the direction of Joan Reede, M.D., the fellowship program has provided young physicians with an intensive year of coursework in health policy, public health, and management at the Harvard School of Public Health or John F. Kennedy School of Government, as well as special program activities-all with an emphasis on minority health issues. Since 1996, a total of 23 fellows have successfully completed the program and received a master's degree in public health. In the coming year, the program will select a seventh group of fellows while providing current fellows with an enriched course of study, career development, and program evaluation. The Fund proposes to continue support for the Fellowship in Minority Health Policy for up to 55 fellows, for a total of 11 years, during which time Fund staff will continue to work with the program office in seeking potential sources of cofunding.
