Harkness Fellowships in Health Care Policy and Practice, 2015–16


Harkness Fellows in Health Care Policy and Practice make an important impact on policy and practice, both in the United States and in fellows’ home countries. Support for an 18th class of Harkness Fellows will allow The Commonwealth Fund to continue developing promising policy researchers and practitioners from Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. Renewed support for a Swiss Harkness Fellowship will be sought, and, to enrich and diversify the program further, a new French fellowship position will be developed. The Fund will also continue to leverage the program, drawing on alumni fellows’ on-the-ground expertise to highlight delivery system innovations in their home countries that are potentially transferable to the U.S. A high-level policy retreat planned for July 2014 will bring selected Harkness alumni together with U.S. policymakers to discuss international innovations relevant to U.S. health reform.
