The Commonwealth Fund/Harvard University Fellowship in Minority Health Policy: Support for Program Direction


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 quality medical services. The Fellowship in Minority Health Policy has played an important role in addressing these needs. During the year-long program, physicians undertake intensive study in health policy, public health, and management, all with an emphasis on minority health issues, at Harvard University. Fellows also participate in special program activities. Since 1996, a total of 73 fellows (including 14 supported by the California Endowment and three supported by Delta Dental) have successfully completed the program and received a master's degree in public health or public administration. In the coming year, program staff will select a 13th group of four fellows, provide current fellows with an enriched course of study and career development, and conduct ongoing evaluation activities. Applications for cofunding have been submitted to Delta Dental and Harvard University.
