The Mongan Commonwealth Fund Fellowship in Minority Health Policy: Support for Program Direction and Fellowships, 2013–14


Since 1996, the Mongan Commonwealth Fund Fellowship in Minority Health Policy—renamed this year in honor of Dr. James J. Mongan—has trained a cadre of physicians to lead efforts to improve health care for vulnerable populations and, in the process, played an important role in the drive to reduce pervasive racial and ethnic disparities. During the first fellowship year, physicians enrolled in the master’s program in public health or public administration at Harvard University receive an enriched program that includes study in health policy, public health, and management, all with an emphasis on minority health issues. Commonwealth Fund support covers four to five fellows each year. In 2012, an option is being introduced for fellows to pursue a second fellowship year focused on practicum work.
