The Association of Health Care Journalists, Inc. (AHCJ) is an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing public understanding of health care issues. With support from the Commonwealth Fund, AHCJ facilitates two fellowships to educate health care journalists.
The Association of Health Care Journalists (AHCJ) Reporting Fellowships on Health Care Performance is a yearlong program enabling mid-career journalists to pursue a significant reporting project examining health care systems. The program, in its ninth year, is meant to help journalists understand and report on the performance of local health care markets and the U.S. health system as a whole.
The Association of Health Care Journalists International Health Study Fellowships is a Commonwealth Fund-supported six-month program allowing veteran U.S.-based health care journalists to pursue a story or project comparing a facet of the U.S. health care system to that of another country. For the program’s pilot year, candidates are asked to select a comparably developed European country.
