The Commonwealth Fund/Harvard University Fellowship in Minority Health Policy: Support for Program Direction and Fellowships, 2004-05


Addressing pervasive racial and ethnic disparities in health and health care requires trained, dedicated physicians who can lead efforts to improve minority Americans' access to medical services and quality of care. The Fellowship in Minority Health Policy has played an important role in addressing these needs. Under the direction of Joan Reede, M.D., the 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 35 fellows have successfully completed the program and received a master's degree in public health or public administration. In the coming year, the program will select a ninth group of four fellows while providing current fellows with an enriched course of study, career development, and program evaluation.
