The Harkness Fellowships provide a unique opportunity for mid-career professionals — academic researchers, government policymakers, clinical leaders, hospital and insurance managers, and journalists — to spend up to 12 months in the United States working with leading experts to study health care delivery reforms and critical issues on the health policy agenda in both the U.S. and their home countries. The fellowship is open to candidates from Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, and the United Kingdom.
