The Pozen-Commonwealth Fund Fellowship in Health Equity Leadership at Yale University began with its first cohort of fellows in 2019. It is open to clinicians committed to improving health care access and outcomes for minorities, socioeconomically disadvantaged groups, and other marginalized populations. Fellows complete the 22-month MBA for Executives (EMBA) program at the Yale School of Management, with a focus on health care. Fellows also receive specialized training and mentoring from experts in health care disparities, business, innovation, government from across the university and beyond.
Fellows complete the EMBA curriculum by taking classes every other weekend, as well as attending two longer on-campus modules — a format that allows them to continue in their current roles while developing new leadership capabilities. They are part of a cohort of accomplished and diverse peers, taking core classes with students from all three of EMBA’s focus areas (asset management, health care, and sustainability) and attending colloquia and specialized electives with other professionals from all facets of the health care industry. In addition, fellows benefit from mentoring, immersion trips, and hands-on project opportunities centered on health equity. Graduates earn a Master of Business Administration degree from the Yale School of Management upon completion.
